SIOG2018 Reward for Study Proposal Thermotherapy for Primary H&N Cancer
Dr. Mandy Kiderlen has been awarded with the SIOG 2018 Young Research Prize for her presentation of the proposal regarding exploiting the benefits of the HYPERcollar3D also within primary treatment. Mandy Kiderlen is a resident in Radiation Oncology at Erasmus Medical Center Cancer Institute with great interest in Geriatric Oncology.
Previously she did her thesis on patterns of care in breast cancer in older women. The presented proposal entailed the treatment of elderly patients, i.e. above 70, that are currently treated only with only radiotherapy since metastudies showed no benefit when adding chemotherapy.
