Accelerators play a crucial role in radiation therapy for cancer treatment. The OMA consortium is organizing an international school on medical accelerators that is open for participants from within and outside the network.

Renowned lecturers will complement partner expertise to cover topics such as beam generation, transport and delivery to the patient, as well as treatment schemes, beam extraction and clinical assessment of effectiveness. Current challenges related to beam diagnostics, imaging and patient issues will also be discussed. In addition to the lectures there will be study groups, a poster session and a dedicated industry session.

There will also be opportunities for discussion and networking at evening events and a study tour to CNAO facilities.

Within the school the OMA Scientific Board (SB) annual meeting and the OMA Steering Committee (SC) meeting will take place.

Registration deadline: 31st March 2017
