Statement of Need

Sarcomas are rare tumors affecting approximately 12,000 patients yearly. Treatment usually consists of some combination of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy and the most common site is the extremity. For large tumors, both high grade and low grade, pre-operative and post-operative radiation has been shown to reduce recurrence. Studies indicate that pre-operative radiation has more wound complications and post-operative radiation has more joint stiffness and late toxicity. There is a need to review the current state of the literature on SBRT for soft-tissue sarcoma, to understand the benefits and risks in the pre-operative vs. post-operative setting, and discuss future studies needed to maximize the therapeutic benefits of SBRT for the treatment of soft-tissue sarcoma.

Target Audience

This program is designed to meet the needs of radiation oncologists, neurosurgeons, residents-in-training and healthcare professionals with interest in learning about the rationale for the use of SBRT in the pre-operative and post-operative treatment of soft tissue sarcomas, outcomes with SBRT for soft tissue sarcoma and methods for SBRT.

Activity Objectives

  • Understanding the rationale for the use of SBRT in both the pre-operative and post-operative setting for the treatment of soft tissue sarcomas
  • Being aware of the outcomes of using SBRT for soft tissue sarcoma
  • Understanding the methods for SBRT

Accreditation Statement

In order to successfully complete this knowledge-based continuing education activity, the participant must register for the activity, view the educational sessions, complete the online examination and activity evaluation.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) Statement

The Radiosurgery Society Self-Assessment Module (SAM) titled Stereotactic Body Radiosurgery for Soft Tissue Sarcoma is qualified by the American Board of Radiology in meeting the criteria for self-assessment toward the purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of Certification Program and has been qualified for 1.0 SAM credits. The ABR qualified this SAM on April 18, 2018.

Certificate of Participation

Technology Requirements

Software Requirements

  • A browser version of Internet Explorer 10.0 and higher or Firefox 3.0 or higher, Google Chrome Version 35 or higher.

A note on browser incompatibility:

  • We have tested IE 6.x in controlled configurations and we can stream successfully, but there are some versions that may not support the RTMP streams we push out - basically new technology that old technology can't handle.
  • Possible remedy: upgrade browser version, try alternate browsers such as Firefox.
  • Flash Player Version 11 or higher. If you have an older version it would be best to upgrade now. It's free and does not require a reboot.

Hardware Requirements

  • Windows Based Computer, Mac based Computers, smart phone, tablets
  • Windows XP SP 3 or Vista Home Premium or better
  • Mac OS x 10.5.3 or better
  • Pentium 4 or better
