BOA2019 - SBRT/SABR for Oligometastases

With increasing frequency, local therapy in the form of SBRT or hypofractionated radiation is being applied to patients with oligometastatic cancers as a means of attempting to improve survival outcomes, durability of systemic therapy treatment responses, etc.  However, it is apparent that not all of these indications are driven by evidence-based approaches or data from larger scale clinical trials.  With this session, we aim to provide an updated view of the principles relevant to treatment of oligometastatic disease and the data supporting its utilization.

Target Audience

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

Learning Objectives

  • Identify current evidence that exists for the use of local therapy for oligometastatic cancers
  • Apply best practice for. optimal dose of radiation, timing of treatment (front line vs consolidation vs oligoprogression), integration with systemic therapy such as immunotherapy (for abscopal benefit), etc.
  • Analyze active trials or ones under development that will provide a stronger basis for changes in standards of care for local therapy use in oligometastatic disease states.
