Central Nervous System - Best of ASTRO 2019

There has been a recent flurry of practice-changing options for managing brain and spine metastases as a result of refinements in pathological classification of tumors, better systemic management options, improved imaging permitting precise localization of pathology and avoidance structures within the brain and spine, and better radiotherapy technology. Optimal management of individual patients requires the integration of knowledge across a range of disciplines and an understanding of situations for which clinical trials have not yet provided definitive answers.

This activity is available from November 16, 2019, through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on November 15, 2022.
 
This activity was originally recorded at ASTRO’s 2019 Best of ASTRO, November 14-16, 2019  in Washington, DC.
