This week I'm heading to Jacksonville, Florida, for PTCOG 47 - the annual meeting of the Particle Therapy Co-operative Group. With a conference agenda covering themes such as treatment planning, improving the therapeutic ratio, heavy-ion therapy, in-vivo imaging and scanning beam technologies - as well as reports from the big particle-therapy treatment centres and the latest clinical trial news - PTCOG 47 is the ideal place to get bang up to date with the latest developments in the ever-expanding particle-therapy arena.
