This leading edge program is given by an expert team led by Prof. Dr. R. Pötter and Prof. Dr. C. Kirisits and is complementary to the ESTRO ‘Image-guided radiotherapy & chemotherapy in gynecological cancer’ course.

Participants obtain comprehensive practical insight into the clinical workflow of 3-D image-based brachytherapy for gynecological tumors. Practical issues, solutions and constraints for each participating center are defined during extensive discussions on the practical aspects of implementing 3-D image-based brachytherapy for gynecology.
