Future directions on the treatment of patients with Hodgkin Lymphoma

Datum: 27 februari 2019
Tijd: 17:30
Locatie: UMCG, lokaal 16, Onderwijscentrum
Adres: Hanzeplein 1, 9713 GZ Groningen

​​​​​​​​Noordelijke Refereeravond Radiotherapie

​​The department of Radiation Oncology is very pleased to invite you to the upcoming research meeting Noordelijke Refereeravond Radiotherapie​​


Radiotherapy and systemic treatment are both cornerstones in the treatment of Hodgkin​ Lymphoma, resulting in high cure rates. ​Despite the developments over the last decades, late treatment-related complications, ​especially cardiac toxicity and secondary malignancies, are remaining side effects. 

Insight ​in the factors ​contributing to the development of these side effects is crucial to develop primary and secondary preventive strategies. Primary prevention in radiotherapy mainly focuses on reducing the radiation dose to organs at risk by new radiation technologies. Despite the introduction of new photon-based technologies, radiation dose to normal tissues still is substantial. 

At present, the national indication protocol for proton therapy is under development. During this research meeting, a number of experts in the field will discuss the limitations ​of current treatment of Hodgkin lymphoma and the potential advantages and challenges related to the introduction of proton therapy.​

Target group

Radiation oncologists, hematologists, residents, medical physicists and RTT’s.
