Session 4:
Open Discussion on Importance of Hadrons in Cancer Therapy
Tuesday 25 April 2017
10:15 AM - 12:30 PM

Moderator: Ken Ledingham, Univ. of Strathclyde (United Kingdom)

A small international team of experts from multiple research communities will examine the following questions:
  • Is hadron therapy better than existing therapies and for which tumours?
  • Is it cost effective?
  • Could laser driven hadron beams compete potentially with accelerator beams in cost and size?
  • Wednesday 26 April Show All Abstracts
