“The Strength of Brachytherapy”


In November 2016 the GEC-ESTRO Workshop was successfully held for the fourth time in Poznań, Poland. Planned by the GEC-ESTRO Committee and organised by the ESTRO Office, this event has become a hallmark platform for networking with the seven GEC-ESTRO working groups:  

  • Anal-rectal 
  • Brachy-HERO 
  • Braphyqs 
  • Breast 
  • Gynae 
  • Head and neck
  • UroGEC

 The 5th GEC-ESTRO workshop will return to its initial roots. Each working group will have the opportunity to show their ongoing projects. It should help the brachytherapy community to identify common issues to exchange experience. The idea is also to increase networking between GEC-ESTRO members and other attendees interested in brachytherapy. This kind of information exchange is often not possible during large scientific meetings with busy schedules.

The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Head and neck and eye brachytherapy 
  • Quality and costs in brachytherapy 
  • Breast and skin brachytherapy - recent perspectives 
  • Organ volumes, dose and toxicity for brachytherapy in pelvic malignancies

We welcome and encourage you to register and join us at the 5th GEC-ESTRO Workshop to be held in Rome, a must for all those with a genuine interest in brachytherapy. Come and learn about our ongoing projects and take the opportunity of networking with like-minded brachytherapy enthusiasts.

Please note that this year again, the working groups will have smaller satellite meetings, which will be held either before or after the workshop. We encourage you to contact the working group leaders via echimfwembe@estro.org if you wish to join these meetings and provide your input.
