Project: biological image-guided optimisation of IMRT for head and neck cancer and of IMAT for rectal cancer

project duration
01-MAR-04 – 28-FEB-07
In head and neck or rectal cancer IMRT and IMAT can reduce side effects but most locoregional relapses still occur in the high-dose regions. To target these regions, a KUL-UCL-Ugent collaboration aims to develop IMRT and IMAT techniques that use signal intensity of PET tracers to focus extra dose to intra-tumor foci of radiation resistance.
