2020 Refresher - Lymphomas

This focused talk will provide radiation oncologists with the up-to-date management of patients with lymphoma, including clinical decision making on who benefits from radiotherapy, the optimal dose/fractionation, and technical aspects of treatment including involved site/node radiotherapy and advanced radiation techniques. New trial data will be put in context with existing treatment paradigms, thereby providing attendees a framework on how radiotherapy for lymphoma is integrated with systemic therapies (if applicable) and diagnostic imaging, including PET/CT. Case-based studies will be integrated throughout the talk to highlight the potential role of modern radiation techniques to minimize radiation toxicity.

 

Target Audience

The activity is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists and radiation oncology residents.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the key role of radiotherapy in management of patients with lymphoma, including in the primary, adjuvant, salvage, and palliative settings.
  • Describe how radiotherapy for patients with lymphoma interfaces with systemic therapy.
  • Describe strategies to minimize radiation toxicity, including involved site/node radiotherapy and advanced radiation techniques.
