STOPSTORM is the acronym for “Standardized Treatment and Outcome Platform for Stereotactic Therapy Of Re-entrant tachycardia by a Multidisciplinary” consortium.
In this project patients who are suffering from ventricular tachycardia – a dangerously fast heart rhythm – are treated using a radiation technique that is currently used mainly for lung cancer.
“This is already done in various places since 2014. But the effects of this treatment have not been properly tracked everywhere. With our consortium, we want to put together a large data set of several hundreds of patients in order to better map the results. This will help us understand what dose must be administered and how this can best be administered." -Joost Verhoeff, Radiation Oncologist & Project Coordinator emeritus, UMC Utrecht.
