We were pleased to welcome Harvard’s Prof Thomas Bortfeld to give a seminar on temporo-spatial optimization of radiation therapy.
Prof Thomas Bortfeld gave his talk on the grand challenges in temporo-spatial optimization. Prof Bortfeld’s key 4 challengers were:
- Transfering CTV Definition from an art to a science.
- Towards Optimal Stopping: ending the treatment after the optimal patient-individual radiation dose level has been reached.
- Understanding FLASH therapy: ultra-short treatment delivery for better biological effectiveness
- …democratizing high tech treatments such as Proton Therapy.
Sydney Vital Director Prof Dale Bailey was in conversation with Harvard Medical School’s Prof Thomas Bortfeld after his seminar on Temporo-spatial optimization of radiation therapy.
