Health problems after 3D-planned pediatric radiotherapy: A nation-wide cohort study

Phone 088 97 25 192

In about one third of the pediatric cancer patients radiotherapy is a major part of the treatment. Although essential for curing certain types of pediatric cancers, radiotherapy can also cause late health problems.

This study aims to get more insight in the late health effects after 3DRT in a nationwide cohort study among childhood cancer survivors (for more information, click here).

As a radiation technologist, my role in this study is to collect all specific radiotherapy data in the 7 academic pediatric oncology centers. The radiotherapy data includes the digital images of the treatment, the actual treatment plans and the Dose Volume Histograms (DVHs), to calculate the dose that was delivered to the surrounding tissue (organs at risk). My main task is to prepare this data and convert it to the research database. The information in the research database will be used for analysis goals.
