Proton Radiotherapy: Shaping Patient Dose Accuracy
Speaker: Dr Ana Lourenco, MInstP, National Physical Laboratory (NPL)
The metrologists at NPL, UK, lead the world in measurement science and as such play a crucial role in improving the accuracy, consistency and delivery of radiotherapy treatments for cancer patients.
In this talk we will consider the challenges of effective radiation dose delivery and measurement, yet showcase the development of new innovative primary standard instrumentation that is underpinning enhanced proton radiotherapy treatments; a cutting edge approach for the treatment of targeted tumour conformations.
