The Radiosurgery Society® (RSS) has made a collaborative effort to create three Working Groups (Clinical, Physics and Biology) to address the clinical and scientific facets of GRID/Lattice, FLASH and Microbeam radiation therapies, with the goal of conducting research to advance clinical treatments for patients. Members of the GRID/Lattice, FLASH and Microbeam Working Groups are experts in the fields of radiobiology, medical physics and radiation oncology who work collectively to understand the biology, technical and physical parameters, and clinical practice of these emerging technologies.
Thursday, March 3, 2022, 7:45 AM - 4:45 PM PT, Omni Hotel, Carlsbad, CA
Sunday, October 24, 5:00 PM CT, McCormick Place West, Room W186, Chicago, IL
This session will be moderated by Robert Griffin, PhD, and will cover the basic science, medical physics and clinical knowledge of spatially fractionated radiation therapy (SFRT) treatments as well as partial tumor exposures that when added to a treatment regimen have resulted in similar or better outcomes than standard radiation therapy alone. Expert speakers including Drs. Nina Mayr, William Regine, Jason Luke, Adriana Haimovitz-Friedman and Sha Chang will describe current recommendations for applying spatial fractionation and interpret and predict the potential benefit of applying SFRT to metastatic anatomically difficult tumor volumes.
