The 4th annual PTCOG-North America conference will focus on advances in IMPT, robustness in treatment planning, quantifying and managing the uncertainty in range and tumor motion, incorporating 3-D imaging with daily delivery, and various other topics. The clinical applications will center on the traditionally recognized clinical indications, including breast, lung, head and neck, gastrointestinal tract and pediatric cancers.

Hypo-fractionation and combined modality approaches will also be highlighted. We anticipate updates on outcomes of completed, as well as ongoing clinical trials, and a robust discussion around future protocols, grant opportunities, and multi-institutional collaborative efforts, as well as recognizing the value of large multi-center registry data.
