Pre-Resection vs. Post-Resection SRS for Brain Metastases
This course is available from June 13, 2016 through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on June 13, 2019.
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is an increasingly common treatment modality used in both the pre-surgical and post-surgical setting for the treatment of brain metastases. Some studies indicate that pre-operative SRS may have potential benefits compared to post-operative SRS for select patients with brain metastases. Other studies have not shown a benefit of pre-operative SRS compared to post-operative SRS for brain metastases. There is a need to review the current state of the literature on pre-operative SRS vs post-operative SRS, to understand the benefits and risks of each SRS in the pre vs post-operative setting, and discuss future studies needed to maximize the therapeutic benefits of SRS for the treatment of brain metastases.
This program is designed to meet the needs of radiation oncologists, neurosurgeons, medical physicists, residents-in-training and healthcare professionals with interest in learning about the benefits and risks of pre-operative resection SRS vs post-operative resection SRS to treat brain metastases.
In order to successfully complete this knowledge-based continuing education activity, the participant must register for the activity, view the educational sessions, and complete the online examination and activity evaluation.
