    Brussels is the capital of Belgium and is also considered the principal city of the European Union. It has all the characteristics of a metropolis, but at the same time is a small tranquil city. It has extremely modern neighborhoods that contrast with its renowned Art Deco buildings, and the streets of Brussels are packed with charm and history. We’re pleased to host the Advanced Clinical Course “ExacTrac Dynamic® for Breast Cancer” in cooperation with Universitair Ziekenhuis Brussel and the team of Prof. Mark de Ridder and Prof. Thierry Gevaert.
