Events in nuclear medicine and radiotherapy – 2016


AIPES: Join the symposium organized by AIPES and the European Parliament on cancer patient management
An estimated 3.5 million new cancer cases are diagnosed in Europe each year, with associated costs of €100 billion. Thanks to nuclear medicine, we are better placed than ever to treat the killer disease. “Saving Costs in Cancer Patient Management Through Nuclear Medicine” is organised by the Association of Imaging Producers and Equipment Suppliers (AIPES) and the European Parliament on Wednesday 28 September 2016. For complete information, please visit www.aipessymposium.eu

3rd Belgian Hadrontherapy Workshop:  Clinical practice, radiobiology and physics – September 29, 2016, Lake House of SCK•CEN, Boeretang 201, BE-2440 Mol, Belgium.
Highlights of the day: 2 proton therapy initiatives in Belgium (Leuven and Charleroi), expected need of radiotherapy in Belgium up to 2050, limiting healthy tissue and side effects, decreasing metastatic risks, developing biomarkers of radiation response and controlling respiratory motion during radiotherapy.
Please feel free to register and attend this meeting. More info and free registration (until this Friday) online.

Belgium and Rad4med.be at IAEA General Conference in Vienna! 

Each year in September, the IAEA organises its General Conference at the Vienna International Centre. This year, the 60th GC will be held from September 26 – 30. On that occasion, delegates, including Heads of State, ministers and experts of all 168 IAEA member states are present at the Agency’s headquarters. Belgium will be part of this important event with (1) the scientific forum on « Nuclear Technology for the Sustainable Development Goals » (complete program here) and (2) the exhibition and the Belgian booth with Belgian actors. Focus for 2016: expertise and experience in education and training as those two fields are of uttermost importance for the development of healthcare applications of radiation.

Nuclear Medicine in Cancer Management: Improving Efficacy and Reducing Costs.
16 September 2015
Théâtre du Vaudeville, Brussels
An AIPES Symposium
Molecular Imaging is in a key position to bring personalized therapy into routine clinical practice. It can provide non-invasive tools to monitor and predict response to therapy, leading to improved quality of life while, at the same time, reduces healthcare costs.  AIPES cordially invites you to attend the 2015 Symposium where the opinion leaders, listed below, will present their experience and evidence on how patient management could be improved within the current constraints of the global economic climate. An open round-table discussion with the audience will follow. Programme & Registration.

ANIMMA
20-24 April 2015
Lisbon Congress Center
Co-organised for the 4th time by SCK•CEN, the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre, is specifically dedicated to nuclear instrumentation and measurement. You, your institution or company have developed instrumentation or techniques that are certainly of great interest to the participants. A technical exhibition will be on display during the congress and will constantly be available to the participants during the 4 days of the meeting. Practical information will become available soon on the ANIMMA website http://www.animma.com.

Workshop on Signatures of Medical and Industrial Isotope Production (WOSMIP)
12-14 May 2015, in Egmont Palace in Brussels, Belgium.
Recognizing the immense importance of both isotope production and nuclear treaty monitoring, WOSMIP seeks to bring together experts from both communities to better understand the challenges that production effluent signatures present and to propose ways to mitigate ambiguities as the production of isotopes increases to meet demand.
This year’s workshop will be hosted by SCK·CEN Belgian Nuclear Research Centre, the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL).
For information on WOSMIP V abstract submission, registration, scientific topics for discussion, agenda items and dates, etc., please visit the CTBTO website
