Radiation therapy is an important tool in the fight against cancer, allowing the treatment of cancerous tumours beyond reach of traditional surgery. The successful use of external beam radiotherapy has led to an increase of life expectancy of cancer patients, and late toxicity effects associated to irradiation of healthy tissue are becoming more relevant. Late toxicity effects span from tumour growth to second cancer development. The GHOST project (www.ghost-project.org) aims to help evaluating the risk of expressing these effects by simulating dose depositions in the human body over the entire treatment. This seminar will give an overview of the project and its current status.
