The 5th ANSTO “Nuclear Science and Technology for Health” Symposium will be held as a satellite symposium of the IPAC19 in Melbourne.  

This year the focus will be on accelerator technologies and their application to deliver better radiotherapies. 

This one day symposium will bring together world leading accelerator physicists, radiation oncologists and medical physicists to explore new directions in accelerator based therapies for cancer treatment, with linear accelerators, synchrotrons and particle accelerators and fast-track their translation into clinical practice.

Participants will gain updates on advances in accelerator technologies and delivery protocols that provide precision, targeted and combined therapies which may provide radiation oncologists with new options to treat cancers more effectively.

The symposium will be an opportunity to engage with research partners and industry to collaborate on the translation of new developments into clinical practice nationally.
