The 2023 Advancements in GRID, LATTICE, Microbeam & FLASH Symposium provides a review and update on the clinical practice, physics, and biology of novel non-homogenous radiation therapy, including spatially-fractionated therapy (SFRT), GRID, LATTICE, Microbeam, and FLASH radiotherapy. The program will be multidisciplinary, representing clinical practice, physics, and biology in each session; and will focus on the intersections of clinical application, biology, and physics, which are strongly interdependent. Current knowledge in all three disciplines will be critically appraised in each session and future perspectives will be developed for clinical research, physics, technological development, and basic science in these evolving fields.
Objective 1: To understand clinical, physics and biological aspects of dose heterogeneity in GRID and LATTICE based SFRT.
Objective 2: To understand the clinical applications of GRID and LATTICE SFRT with respect to physics and biological principles of dose heterogeneity, combinations of SFRT with conventional external beam radiation, immunomodulating effects, and the interdependence of clinical and pre-clinical research in GRID and LATTICE SFRT.
Objective 3: To understand mechanistic principles, beam modalities, emerging clinical applications, and the interrelated roles of clinical and pre-clinical research in FLASH and Microbeam therapy.
