ARCHITECT: Adaptive Brachytherapy using Customised Needle Applicators

For women undergoing gynaecologic brachytherapy, we aim to optimise treatment conformity with 3D printed patient-tailored applicators, including spatially optimised needle source channels for intracavitary and image-guided interstitial use. High conformity increases local tumour control and cure, while reducing (long-term) side effects and their impact on quality of life of patients.
