SABR for NSCLC: From an Alternative to Conventional Radiotherapy to an Alternative for Surgery
Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy has replaced conventionally fractionated radiotherapy in medically inoperable patients with early stage lung cancer, The high local control rates and improved survival have led to studies investigating SABR as an alternative to surgery. A number of randomized trials comparing SABR and surgery have failed to accrue enough patients.
In this webinar, the use and outcomes of SABR for peripheral and central tumors in patients with medically inoperable early stage NSCLC will be discussed. In addition, the potential role of SABR as an alternative to surgery for operable patients will be addressed.
This program is designed to meet the needs of radiation oncologists and medical physicists with interests in SABR for the treatment of inoperable early stage NSCLC.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the Minnesota Medical Association and The Radiosurgery Society. The Minnesota Medical Association (MMA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Minnesota Medical Association designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
