The Belgian radiation oncology providers (physicians, medical physicist, nursing staff) team up with the medical industry that offers the tools and systems to provide high-quality radiation therapy treatments to patients with cancer. The medical and industrial partners within BRAVO decided to create better awareness of radiation-oncology as a very safe and very modern treatment method of cancer. The main aim of this cooperation is to spread this message among patients, medical colleagues, politicians and press.
