Dr. D. Vriens (LUMC)
In this short overview I will take you through some basic nuclear physics and camera technology, ending with real clinical examples. Afterwards you understand what working on the crossroads of physics, chemistry and medicine means in daily practice.

Developments in MRI for oncology aim to achieve better contrast and tumour delineation in a shorter amount of time. Classic image sequences include diffusion weighted imaging and dynamic contrast enhancement which will be explained. In addition, exciting new hardware implementations such as MR-Linac or custom coil designs will be described.
Drs. B. Boekestijn (LUMC)
Computed tomography (CT) is a well-established imaging method and features of malignancies have already been investigated extensively. However, new techniques are still being developed and implemented. In this talk new developments such as improvements in resolution, CT perfusion and texture analysis will be discussed.
Prof. dr. M. van Vulpen (LUMC)
Although physical uncertainties are less in photon therapy, proton therapy offers in theory major gain in dose delivery. Here technical uncertainties in proton therapy are explained, including possible solutions.
Prof. dr. L.F. de Geus-Oei (LUMC)
Nuclear medicine thrives by continuous changes. The current decade a wave of new theranostic compounds, targeting the same receptor for imaging and therapy, will change the oncology therapeutic arsenal.
