HIRO and OncoRay Lecture Series: Radiation response of normal tissue (Prof. Dr. Christian Karger)

  • Address: Virtual
  • Language: English
  • Registration necessary: Yes

Normal tissues are inevitably included in the high dose volume of radiotherapy, predominantly within the 
tumor and surrounding normal tissue, thus bearing a certain risk of early and/or late complications. The 
radiation response of normal tissues and its dependence on treatment parameters and biological factors, 
e.g. dose, fractionation protocol, overall treatment time as well as the impact of the irradiated tissue 
volume will be discussed. Current strategies to model and to ameliorate radiation effects in normal tissues 
will be presented.
