Radiation therapy-related late effects - Dr. Rebecca Howell
Monday, April 11, 2022
Dr. Rebecca Howell will present a discussion of methods to reconstruct doses for epidemiological studies of late effects from cancer radiotherapy for large cancer survivor cohorts. She will describe the sources of information and steps for dose reconstruction; discusses different levels of dose reconstruction such as average organ dose, dose to second cancer site, and body-region dose; and presents issues of record quality and dose uncertainty.
