NYU Winthrop Department of Radiation Oncology: Advances in SBRT in the Management of Prostate Cancer - a CME symposium sponsored by Accuray

LOCATION

Rio Hotel
3700 W Flamingo Rd
Las Vegas, NV 89103

OVERVIEW

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) has emerged as an exciting and validated treatment option for men with localized prostate cancer. This is supported by the unique radiobiology of prostatic adenocarcinoma coupled with innovations in treatment delivery. Long-term data continues to emerge demonstrating favorable biochemical control with low normal tissue toxicity. This symposium is designed to provide physicians with an overview of the long-term data, as well as to explore the clinical questions that remain regarding optimizing the use of SBRT for cure while minimizing side effects. To promote understanding of the intricacies of SBRT, an internationally renowned group of clinician scientists has been assembled to lead this discussion.

OBJECTIVES

- Describe the radiobiologic and physics-related rationale for employing stereotactic body radiation therapy for prostate cancer

- Analyze appropriate candidates for prostate SBRT as well as expected outcomes related to biochemical control and toxicity.

- Integrate holistic approaches with conventional management of localized disease.

- Discuss controversies and future directions regarding SBRT for prostate cancer, including sequencing with more conventional therapies and changes in prescribed dose to tumor and normal tissue.

REGISTRATION

There is no registration fee.
