The Swedish testbed’s workshop on MRI in radiotherapy was soon fully booked. The around one hundred participants are proof that there is great interest in the subject among doctors, nurses, physicians and technicians working with radiotherapy.
The use of MRI in radiotherapy is becoming increasingly common. The radiotherapy departments at the university hospitals and other large hospitals either have their own MRI equipment for radiotherapy or are in the process of installing it.
The Swedish Testbed for Innovative Radiotherapy therefore organised a workshop for oncologists, radiologists, physicians, nurses and technicians. The workshop provided an opportunity for both education and discussion. Focus: Practical implementation of MRI in the radiotherapy process.
Lecturers invited from Denmark, among other countries, shared their experiences. The use of MRI in radiotherapy has made more progress there than in Sweden.
An open meeting on MRI in radiotherapy was held 10-11 September in Lund and was arranged by representatives of the Swedish Testbed for Innovative Radiotherapy project in collaboration with another national project which is furthering the field of radiotherapy in Sweden: Gentle Radiotherapy.
