Breu explicació del projecte / Brief explanation of your project
The use of radiation for medical diagnosis and treatment procedures has had a major impact on the survival of paediatric patients. Although the benefits of these techniques largely outweigh the risks, there is a need to better understand the long-term health effects of such exposures in order to optimise treatment plans in these young patients and reduce the risk of late toxicities. To do so, the EU-funded HARMONIC project is building European cohorts and registries for the long-term follow-up of paediatric patients undergoing modern radiotherapy or interventional cardiology. Epidemiological data will help assess the association of early radiation exposure with endocrine dysfunction, cardiovascular and neurovascular diseases, and cancer development. HARMONIC will also assess the impact of radiotherapy on the medium and long-term quality of life, and social and academic outputs of these paediatric patients.
