ESTRO 27: European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology Annual Congress

16.06.2008
Estro 27, sharing knowledge: preparing for tomorrow’s challenges

More than 4.500 cancer specialists from all over the world will attend a challenging, state-of-the-art programme in Göteborg this September. Over 500 presentations will highlight advances in radiotherapy and multidisciplinary approaches to the treatment of cancer.

Advances in all aspects of the use and delivery of radiotherapy have improved cancer care for millions of people across Europe, and ESTRO 27 provides the opportunity for specialists to publish their results and debate critically how best to improve care still further through:

Teaching sessions in clinical radiotherapy, brachytherapy, radiobiology, physics and technology,

Joint sessions to maximise the use of multi-disciplinary cancer management,

Presentation of research results and major breakthroughs,

Proffered papers, poster presentations and discussions,

10.000 m2 exhibition of brand new materials, which makes ESTRO 27 - the largest European industrial exhibition in Radiotherapy.

A press conference will be held on the 15th of September 2008 to highlight the major research advances that will be presented during the congress.

Journalists will benefit from a free media registration and have access to all the congress.

A press centre on site will coordinate all the information.

Details about the congress programme and hotel accommodation will be available on the website www.estro27.org.

Radiotherapy is the use of ionising radiation to treat cancer and some non malignant conditions. In many types of cancer, radiotherapy is now the first choice curative treatment, and in others, radiotherapy is used to enhance the effectiveness of surgery or drug based therapy, as well as being used in palliative care to relieve symptoms associated with cancer.

The European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ESTRO) was founded in 1980 and today, with more than 7.000 members, the society promotes Radiology among all disciplines in cancer treatment and research.

ESTRO provides educational and continuing professional development programmes to oncologists and also disseminates research results, organises meetings and conferences for all professionals involved in delivering Radiotherapy – radio- therapists, biologists, physicists and oncology nurses - to improve patient care.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Nano-hologram paves way for integration of 3-D holography into everyday electronics

An Australian-Chinese research team has created the world's thinnest hologram, paving the way towards the integration of 3D holography into everyday...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

Biofilms: Researchers find the causes of water-repelling properties

Dental plaque and the viscous brown slime in drainpipes are two familiar examples of bacterial biofilms. Removing such bacterial depositions from surfaces is...
