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.

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
