Burying the Complexity: Re-engineering for the Next Generation of Medical Linear Accelerators for Use in Challenging Environments (THIRD CERN-ICEC-STFC WORKSHOP)

The workshop, Burying the Complexity: Re-engineering for the Next Generation of Medical Linear Accelerators for Use in Challenging Environments, jointly organised by STFC, the International Cancer Expert Corps (ICEC) and CERN, was funded through the UK’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). It continued to develop the work that arose from two previous meetings held at CERN in November 2016 and October 2017. Its focus was to hear the outcome of five STFC seed-corn funded projects developed at the October 2017 workshop, and further refine the specification for a novel medical linear accelerator radiotherapy machine. Read more…
