The objective of this workshop is to review the current state-of-the-art and challenges associated with hadron therapy instrumentation. The workshop will bring together clinical and basic scientific experts in the fields of proton therapy, carbon ion therapy and boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT). Central topics will include developments in:
• Radiography and computed tomography with protons and heavier ions
• Image guidance workflows in hadron therapy
• Treatment verification systems
• Beam delivery systems
• Motion tracking and compensation systems
Advances in technology will be linked back to the clinical setting with invited talks by radiation oncologists.
If you are interested in contributing with a short presentation, please submit your abstract through the NSS-MIC abstract submission system by September 1st, 2018. We encourage young researchers to present and discuss their work. Abstracts submitted to the NSS-MIC conference should not be resubmitted to the workshop.
Scott Penfold on behalf of the Workshop Chairs.
