Dear Colleagues,


On behalf of the organisers, I have a great pleasure to invite to the Fifth Congress of the Polish Brachytherapy Society to be held in Poznań, on 2-4 June in Poznań, on the premises of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

It is the fifth time we hold this traditional meeting to discuss the latest progress in the knowledge of brachytherapy of cancer. We will also review the new developments in the financing of brachytherapy procedures and the changing role of brachytherapy in the treatment of cancer.

Our congresses have taken part every two-three years since 2007. The event is attended by an ever growing number of doctors, physicists and nurses from across Poland and Europe. The invitation is directed to oncologists, radiation therapists, clinical oncologists, medical physicists, medical technicians, electroradiologists, surgeons, palliative medicine physicians and other medical professionals involved in the care of cancer patients. I hope we will have an interesting exchange of views regarding cancer brachytherapy, multidisciplinary treatment, medical physics and radiobiology based on our own reports and lectures given by our visitors.

We would like to invite oncologists from our neighbouring countries; therefore, we have created a website in English.

The conference will be conducted in Polish (invited visitors’ lectures in English) in the form of a discussion panel preceded by reports presented by experts in the disciplines concerned.
Looking forward to seeing you in Poznań in June 2016.

Please, visit the Congress website at that will be updated on an ongoing basis.
