Highlights of the 2nd ESTRO forum, 19th-23rd April 2013, Geneva, Switzerland.
Organised every other year, the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) Forum follows the concept of combining several meetings encompassing the various aspects of the radiation oncology arena: clinical and translational research, brachytherapy, radiation physics, radiation technology and normal tissue effects of radiotherapy. This approach allows clinicians, medical physicists, radiobiologists, radiation technologists and nurses to attend a plethora of symposia, teaching lectures and debates, all directed at fostering interdisciplinarity and encouraging exchange of knowledge and experience between the professionals involved in radiotherapy. In this brief overview we mainly focus on the important clinical findings presented at the conference. All abstracts are freely available at
