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.
Until further notice, the lecture series will take place online only.
