The Department of Medical Physics, Anna University is organizing an Online International Workshop on Basics of Radiation Oncology Physics from January 4 to 9, 2021.
Anna University is a public state university located in Tamil Nadu, India. The main campus is in Guindy, Chennai and the satellite campus is in Chromepet, Chennai. It was established on 4 September 1978.
Radiation therapy uses radiation to damage the DNA of cells. This kills the cancer cells or stops them from reproducing. It is used to treat many types of cancer. It is estimated that 50% of cancer patients will receive radiation during treatment for their cancer and it is also called a localized treatment because it treats a specific area of the body where the cancer is growing.
Hence education about Radiotherapy is highly essential in creating awareness and proficiency. Hence the present workshop by a distinguished speaker with international expertise will be an indispensable source for students and practitioners of this complex and challenging modality. The workshop will describe the rapid evolution of this technique as an essential element in the multidisciplinary technique in a comprehensive manner and thoroughly up-to-date.
