Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys. 2020 Jul 15;107(4):766-778. doi: 10.1016/j.ijrobp.2020.03.028. Epub 2020 Apr 13.


The National Cancer Institute's Radiation Research Program, in collaboration with the Radiosurgery Society, hosted a workshop called Understanding High-Dose, Ultra-High Dose Rate and Spatially Fractionated Radiotherapy on August 20 and 21, 2018 to bring together experts in experimental and clinical experience in these and related fields. Critically, the overall aims were to understand the biological underpinning of these emerging techniques and the technical/physical parameters that must be further defined to drive clinical practice through innovative biologically based clinical trials.
