STATEMENT OF NEED
Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) has been increasingly used as a therapeutic option for spinal metastases. Prospective and retrospective studies have demonstrated promising outcomes. However, given the close proximity of the neural structures, including the spinal cord, to the target volume, the therapeutic window is very narrow. As a result, the technical requirements are very stringent. Proper target delineation and contouring of organs-at risk are of paramount importance. Serious toxicities have been reported after SBRT for spinal metastases and strategies to avoid them have been formulated.
This program is designed to meet the needs of radiation oncologists with interests in consensus guidelines for delineation of clinical target volume (CTV), postoperative spinal metastasis settings and organ-at-risk (OAR) contouring practice for the safe delivery of spinal SBRT.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of AMEDCO and the Radiosurgery Society (RSS). AMEDCO is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
