The 3rd PUMCH Continuing Education Workshop on Standardization of Precision Radiotherapy on Gynecologic Tumor was held on November 6-9, 2014 in Beijing. At the opening ceremony the Beijing Brachtherapy Training Center was established.
PUMCH boasts a long history of radiotherapy. It was the earliest among Chinese hospitals to perform radiotherapy and started to use radiumization on cervical carcinoma in 1923. In 1985, radiotherapy was separated from radiology to become an independent department. PUMCH has been leading China in terms of radiotherapy techniques and facilities. It started from 2005 to apply IMRT to cervical carcinoma and, from 2007, was the first to research into CT-guided 3D brachtherapy for cervical carcinoma and treated more than 1,000 cases of gynecologic tumors.
