AM2019 PAN10 Definitive and Postoperative Radiation Therapy for Basal and Squamous Cell Cancers of the Skin

This panel will focus on the guideline recommendations and videntiary base for radiation treatment of basal and squamous cell cancers of the skin. The multidisciplinary panel includes representation from the American Academy of Dermatology, American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Society of Dermatopathology, and the Society of Surgical Oncology. The guideline includes recommendations for cutaneous BCC and SCC skin cancer on definitive and post-operative radiation therapy. It discusses preferred techniques and dose-fractionation schedules as well as the appropriate use of systemic agents, including immunotherapy, with radiation in the neoadjuvant, adjuvant, and concurrent settings. Finally, the ASTRO guideline development process and the systematic review parameters for this guideline will be briefly presented.
