• Head & neck tumors

    The webinar will be focused on the therapeutic management of Head and Neck cancers, with particular regards to the current evidences and future development of particle therapy. . Particle therapy is currently one of the advanced techniques of radiation therapy, increasingly selected thanks to the advantageous physical and biological properties.. Due to the proximity of HNC target volumes to numerous critical structures and the radioresistance of several histologies, nowadays hadrontherapy represents a promising alternative to photon-based therapy. Head and Neck cancers treatment needs a multidisciplinary approach due to the complexity and rarity of the disease.
    In this setting, future perspectives will explore the possible combination of systemic therapies and Hadrontherapy, defining the role and timing of these new strategies within national and international collaboration.
