Current challenges of patient re-irradiation - it has now almost become a tradition to organise every second year a multidisciplinary workshop together with Andrzej Wojcik from the Centre for Radiation Protection Research, MBW Department, Stockholm University. This year we joined forces with Mattias Hedman (Funktionsområdeschef, Överläkare Tema Cancer, FO Strålbehandling, Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset) for bringing up to the discussions the current challenges of patient re-irradiation. It is a topic at the crossroads between medical physics, radiobiology and clinical care which will attract much interest from a heterogeneous target of physicists, biologists and, of course, medical doctors.
