2024 ASTRO Annual Refresher Course Credit Evaluation

April 17, 2024 to April 19, 2024

This course is designed to provide clinicians in practice and trainees with a comprehensive review and update of the clinical practice parameters across most major sub-disciplines of radiation oncology, including sarcomas, pediatrics and lymphomas, and the role of radiotherapy in the multidisciplinary management of cancer patients. The course will review key evidence that forms the basis for current clinical practice guidelines and trends in new approaches. In addition, the course will cover implementation of hypofractionation in key disease sites as well as treatment of oligometastases and use of SBRT to improve outcomes for patients with metastatic disease. It will also provide hands-on experience in contouring for CNS, sarcoma, and head and neck. It will also inform on the emerging field of Artificial Intelligence in the clinic and the use of circulating tumor DNA in the treatment of select patients with cancer.

 

Target Audience

The meeting is designed to meet the interests of practicing radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, medical and clinical physicists, radiation therapists, radiation dosimetrists, nurses and all other health professionals involved in the field of radiation oncology.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this live activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe and implement the latest radiation therapy treatment recommendations for clinical scenarios commonly encountered in clinical practice.
  • Safely utilize the latest radiation technologies to improve patient care.
  • Describe the ways in which Artificial Intelligence can be implemented in the radiation oncology clinic to aid contouring, diagnosis, and management of patients.
  • Appropriately and safely incorporate the treatment of oligometastases into clinical practice.
  • Identify the ways in which ctDNA can be used in the management of patients with cancer.
