FLASH radiation therapy: From biological research to a clinical facility

Where:  

via zoom

Get a glimpse of FLASH  at https://videos.cern.ch/record/2762058 

FLASH is a new highly promising radiation therapy modality where the treatment dose is delivered in sub-second timescales. A collaboration between CHUV and CERN is working towards the construction of a novel clinical facility based on CLIC technology capable of treating large, deep-seated tumours under FLASH conditions. We will give the biological and clinical background followed by an introduction to the accelerator facility and status of the project.
