Challenging Cases to CNS Current Approaches is organized by American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and will be held from Feb 02, 2017 - Feb 01, 2020.
The target audience for this medical event is radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiation biologists and residents-in-training. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
Each member of the multi-disciplinary panel will present a current controversy in the management of CNS tumors including diffuse gliomas, glioblastoma, re-irradiation, interpreting imaging changes following novel therapies, and brain metastases as well as provide input on their interpretation of available data relevant to the clinical scenario and describe how this data impacts their clinical practice. The faculty will provide a consensus correct answer with supporting data from the recent published literature.
• Recognize the substantial heterogeneity that exists within these tumor types and understand the prognostic and predictive variables that allow for the selection of the appropriate therapy
• Discuss recent literature supporting the role of radiation therapy in the multidisciplinary management of CNS tumors
• Discuss key imaging modalities and features to differentiate recurrent tumor and treatment effect and to identify brain tumor micmics
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
