Executive summary

The use of hypofractionated schedules in proton therapy is rapidly increasing. Their application has several advantages, including the reduction of overall treatment time and direct and indirect costs, the improvement of the patients’ quality of life, and the increase of the overall system capacity. In the era of “green treatments” and a still limited number of Proton Therapy facilities worldwide, these benefits could translate into more sustainable and fair management of the available resources.

In this webinar, Prof. Roberto Orecchia, Prof. Barbara Jereczek and distinguished invited speakers highlight the radiobiological bases and clinical applications of hypofractionated proton therapy in daily clinical practice, offering an updated review of the literature as well as results of their clinical experiences.
