Physics network in paediatric radiotherapy

PROS is hosting a network of medical physicists working with or interested in paediatric radiotherapy. Our interests cover topics like:

  • Fixation for children
  • Treatment planning and treatment techniques
  • IGRT
  • Motion managements, breath hold, gating, etc.
  • Dosimetry
  • Paediatric phantoms
  • Quality assurance
  • New technologies

The network consists of a mailing list where relevant information is distributed periodically. If you wish to join this mailing list (does not require membership of PROS), please contact Klaus Seiersen.

If you are further interested in becoming a member of PROS, this will give you access to the member's forum, which features a dedicated Physics Section. You will also get access to congress presentations and other benefits.

Membership of PROS is possible at a reduced rate for physicists ("allied professional rate").


Members of network

The network currently (Feb 03 2016) has 95 members from 32 countries.



In 2015 a survey was done among the members of the network. The result of this survey is published here (Feb 2016).
