GRID, LATTICE, Microbeam & FLASH Working Groups

About the GRID, LATTICE, Microbeam and FLASH Radiation Therapy Working Groups

The Radiosurgery Society® (RSS) has made a collaborative effort to create three Working Groups (Clinical, Physics and Biology) to address the clinical and scientific facets of GRID, LATTICE, Microbeam and FLASH radiation therapies, with the goal of conducting research to advance clinical treatments for patients. Members of the GRID, LATTICE, Microbeam and FLASH Working Groups are experts or those with interest in the fields of radiobiology, medical physics and radiation oncology who work collectively to understand the biology, technical and physical parameters, and clinical practice of these emerging technologies.
