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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
