Managing Brain Metastases in the 21st Century: Treatment Options and Case Discussions
Managing Brain Metastases in the 21st Century: Treatment Options and Case Discussions is organized by American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and will be held from Dec 12, 2017 - Dec 11, 2020.
The target audience for this medical event is radiation oncologists, radiation therapists, and radiation dosimetrists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
As patients with metastatic disease are enjoying improved survival, brain metastases are an increasing problem. Technologic advances, as well as emerging evidence, suggests that the indications for radiosurgery are increasing, and can be performed without threatening quality of life. Similarly, frameless radiosurgery has made hypofractionation very feasible. Integrating surgery and systemic therapy into the management of brain metastases is also an important consideration. The session will review treatment options and available evidence, including whole brain radiation, with these other modalities, and use case-based discussions to illustrate salient points regarding such options in clinical management, including difficult cases, such as salvage treatment.
After this session, attendees should be able to:
• Discuss treatment options for managing brain metastases.
• Discuss the medical evidence related to various treatment options for brain metastases.
• Explain the indications and contraindications for treatment options.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
