AM2019 PAN15 Gynecological Oncology in the Era of Precision Medicine

This panel session will bring together four experts who can present recent advances in gynecological oncology research and how it can guide our current practice. Cervical and endometrial cancers have a varied response to treatment and there have been several recent discoveries in how molecular and imaging markers can help risk- 
stratify patients. Topics in this session will include 1) novel imaging markers of prognosis and treatment response, 2) recent advances in the surgical approach to cervical cancer, 3) molecular markers of prognosis and use in clinical decision making, and 4) novel targeted therapies in gynecological cancers.

Target Audience

The meeting is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation biologists, and residents.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify how imaging can help predict prognosis and response to treatment for cervical cancers.
  • Describe a molecular marker of prognosis and how it can help guide treatment decisions.
  • Explore how immunotherapy and radiotherapy have been combined in the treatment of cervical cancer.
