A journey through brachytherapy
A journey through brachytherapy
in honor of dr. Jean Roy
On behalf of the Scientific Committee, it is with great pleasure that I invite you to the 2024 edition of Curietherapies’ annual conferences which will take place in Québec city, Canada. The Scientific Committee has put together a very exciting program! Our theme this year is A journey through brachytherapy.
The theme will be reflected throughout the programme via sessions, lectures, panel discussions and debates. For the past 122 years brachytherapy has advanced due mainly to improvements in treatment planning systems, applicators, imaging, clinical trials and the work of pioneers as Jean Roy. Therefore, the program will provide insights on today’s technics updated with the latest advancements in brachytherapy. The sessions will showcase, gynecology, head and neck, prostate brachytherapy and much more. This program will give us opportunity to look at where brachytherapy was, bring to light it’s present and show where it is going as well as focussing on showing brachytherapy as a full partner in multidisciplinary cancer care.
Looking at future advancement, the importance of AI and machine learning as partners in brachytherapy will be discussed. Attendees will also learn about various disease sites which could be treated by brachytherapy using 3-D printing technologies, self-shielded applicators and adaptive brachytherapy all today’s applications that will be discuss. The development of young radiation oncology professionals remains a priority and therefore the Young investigators session will give a voice to students, residents and fellows the quality of their abstract will be highlighted in the Young investigators competition. All along, time will be allocated for discussion, entertaining debates, and interactions between presenters and participants. The multidisciplinary sessions will enable interaction and collaboration between the different disciplines involved in brachytherapy. Furthermore, you will be able to improve your technical skills during our hands on mini workshops on breast, prostate and skin brachytherapy. Finally, the meeting will offer a great educational experience. We invite you to participate in an international gathering of leaders in the field of brachytherapy.
Networking with the industry is always interesting, corporate partners will be present during the meeting to discuss with you. We want to thank our industry partners and also the members of planning committee, without their work this conference cannot be possible!
Join us so we can make this meeting an amazing sharing and learning experience around brachytherapy. Be prepared as this year is going to be one to remember.
