2016:22 Clinical radiotherapy research activities in Sweden

Trends and terms during two decades

In 2009, the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (Strålsäkerhetsmyndigheten, SSM) appointed a scientific council on ionizing radiation within oncology. The council consists of scientific experts in the fields of oncology, radiobiology and medical physics. Their task is to annually review and evaluate scientific developments in radiotherapy and to give SSM advice in issues where a scientific examination of different views is necessary. The council began its work in the autumn of 2009 and this is the fourth report presented.
