2019 Modern Radiotherapy for Hematologic Malignancies

This practical two-day meeting will provide updates on current clinical and translational initiatives in hematologic malignancies relevant to daily clinical practice.

Target Audience

This meeting is designed to meet the interests of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, physicists, nurses, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, radiation therapists, radiation dosimetrists and pediatric hematology-oncologists.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the current guideline-based clinical practice in hematologic malignancies, in a case-based format.
  • Use case examples to apply current hematologic malignancies guidelines into clinical practice.
  • Discuss PET/CT response adaptive radiotherapy protocols for Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • Apply involved-site radiotherapy (ISRT) for all disease sites – including Hodgkin lymphoma, and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • Apply multidisciplinary care in hematologic malignancies for optimal outcomes and discuss the importance of multidisciplinary care with others.
  • Describe key advances in immunotherapy and targeted therapy in hematologic malignancies, and discuss special considerations when incorporating radiotherapy, keeping in mind potential overlapping toxicities.
  • Integrate recent advances in new technology (i.e., IMRT, VMAT, deep inspiration breath hold, proton therapy) and explain to others how and when to integrate them.
  • Describe key advances in imaging and its role in adaptive therapy protocols.
  • Distinguish how late effects of radiotherapy, balanced against emerging data on dose-dependent late effects of chemotherapy, affects decision-making.
  • Manage toxicities related to the management of hematologic malignancies.
  • Summarize key recent advances in the understanding of the biology of hematologic malignancies.
