Central Nervous System Science Highlights
This session highlights five of the most clinically relevant abstracts within the Central Nervous System track of the 2022 ASTRO Annual Meeting scientific program. These noteworthy scientific abstracts share important findings and feature cutting edge research from leaders in the field. The Discussant compares and contrasts the current data to help you digest the latest science; places the study into context; and describes how the study can be put into clinical practice, if recommended.

This activity was originally recorded at ASTRO’s Annual Meeting on October 24, 2022.
The activity is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, physicists and radiation dosimetrists.
Upon completion of this activity, participants:
- Have had the opportunity to increase their level of knowledge, as required to improve competency and performance in the field of oncology.
- When appropriate, implement the advances in radiation oncology that help improve patient outcomes and quality of life.
Discussant: Helen A. Shih MD, MS, FASTRO, MPH, Department of Radiation Oncology, Massachusetts General Hospital
