2022 eContouring Central Nervous System Cancer - Library Cases
This educational activity will provide case-based education on neuroanatomic contouring for the two most common brain tumors seen in radiation oncology practice: brain metastases and glioma. Attendees will be asked to contour tumor targets for intact brain metastases, a resected brain metastasis, and a resected glioblastoma. They will also be asked to contour radiosensitive normal tissue structures, including the hippocampal dentate gyrus, the optic chiasm/nerves, the brainstem, the cochlea, and the lenses. Through this practice and didactic feedback, attendees will learn principles of neuroanatomic contouring that better equips them to radiotherapeutically manage primary and metastatic brain tumor patients.
This program is designed to meet the interest of radiation oncologists, physicists, radiation dosimetrists and radiation oncology residents.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Neuroanatomically contour the hippocampal dentate gyrus and other normal tissues in the brain.
- Neuroanatomically contour an intact brain metastasis, a resected brain metastasis, and a glioblastoma.
- Apply neuroanatomic principles to the radiotherapy planning of primary and metastatic brain tumor patients.
