SRS/SBRT in the Setting of Re-Irradiation:
Indications, Safety and Efficacy (RISE)
This course is available from June 13, 2016 through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on June 13, 2019.
Local tumor recurrences after radiation therapy pose a clinical management dilemma with limited treatment options. The ability to deliver efficacious doses of radiation to the recurrent lesion are limited by the potential toxicities to normal tissues when considering re-irradiation. Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) have been shown to be effective at local control with limited toxicities for CNS and spine lesions, recurrent head and neck tumors and locoregional breast cancer recurrences in the setting of re-irradiation. There is a need to improve therapy for recurrent tumors previously irradiated and SRS/SBRT may be a viable treatment option for select patients. The optimal SRS/SBRT dose, fractionation regimens and integration with chemotherapy and biologic agents needs to be further defined to maximize the therapeutic benefits.
This program is designed to meet the needs of radiation oncologists, neurosurgeons, medical physicists, residents-in-training and healthcare professionals with interest in SRS/SBRT in the setting of re-irradiation for the treatment of recurrent CNS and spine lesions, recurrent head and neck tumors, and locoregional breast cancer recurrences.
