Current treatment techniques for brain metastases

15th January 2021  09:00 - 17:00 (GMT+00:00) GMT

CPD: 5 points

This one-day event will bring together leaders in the treatment of brain metastases and will inform best practice and provide practical approaches to overcoming clinical challenges. This event will create a forum where specialists can educate and inform on their practice and techniques whilst gaining a fresh insight into the solutions of others. Novel research and development ideas will be discussed at this meeting.

There will be opportunities for networking and collaboration amongst experts. The latest solutions from industry leaders will also be available to delegates, helping them to remain informed on the latest technological advances. A debate around the question “Is SRS always the preferred treatment option over whole brain radiotherapy?” will provide an opportunity for delegate participation with the polling of opinion before and after the debate.

We are offering delegates £25 off the ticket price for this event using the code RT25 T&Cs apply*.
