The 8th MR in RT Symposium 2021 goes virtual!


We are happy to announce, that the 8th MR in RT Symposium in Heidelberg, which had to be cancelled in 2020, is now rescheduled for 2021 as virtual event. It is hosted by  the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) - the biggest German biomedical research institute – and will take plase from Monday 19th to Wednesday 21st of April 2021.

The fast technological development and the rapid clinical implementation of MRI in radiation therapy applications is currently one of the most exciting as well as most challenging developments in radiation oncology. With this science symposium we would not only like to bring together specialists from all involved disciplines, but also to foster a discussion about the scientific direction of the field. The latest developments in physics and technology of MR-guided radiotherapy, clinical directions and results will be presented.

Prior to the symposium (April 18th, 2021) we are preparing a Virtual Satellite Symposium for a limited number of attendees to have a more in-depth look into some aspects of clinical procedures for QA and dosimetry at an MR-Linac.

We are well aware, that hosting such a virtual event in 2021 might still be difficult. Nevertheless, we will try to organize a fruitful and relaxed virtual event to build new and reinforce existing cooperation among the virtual attendees. 

We are looking forward to seeing you online in 2021!
