The paper was published in one of the most renowned journals in the field: Clinical and Translational Radiation Oncology.

This is an international, open access journal which encompasses all aspects of clinical and translational radiation oncology research.

The approach

The team developed a novel approach to overcome the challenge of identifying and potentially avoiding brain damage induced by radiation therapy for brain cancer.

This included work from Merethe's bachelor thesis entitled Long-term neurocognitive outcomes in post-radiotherapy low-grade glioma patients in which she was supervised by Dr. Hiske van der Weide (radiation oncologist at the UMCG).

Dr. van der Weide is co-author of the paper and has also been teaching the course 'Oncology' for third-year UCG students.
