Course description

Historically, brachytherapy achieved 75-95% local control in early and 30-65% in advanced cervical tumours. With MRI guided brachytherapy, local control in EMBRACE 1 study was 98% for stage IB1 to 90% for stage IV. Morbidity was favourable. CT guided brachytherapy is a lower-cost alternative to MRI. This course helps with implementation of CT guided brachytherapy. International faculty of past ESTRO teachers, Serbian experts, and other international experts share their knowledge on the topic.
