DTL’s partner CWI, the Foundation Children Cancer free (Stichting Kinderen Kankervrij), the Department of Radiation Oncology of the Academic Medical Center (AMC) join forces in a new research project to survey radiation-related long-term effects more accurately than ever before. The study is based on the 3D-reconstruction of the radiation dose of former patients whose long-term effects are known. The research lays the foundation for the development of improved radiation treatments and better decision support for the treatment of children with cancer.
It is for the first time that researchers focus this closely on survivors of childhood cancer that have been treated successfully more than twenty years ago. Read more.
