Challenging Cases to CNS Current Approaches

Each member of the multi-disciplinary panel will present a current controversy in the management of CNS tumors including diffuse gliomas, glioblastoma, re-irradiation, interpreting imaging changes following novel therapies, and brain metastases as well as provide input on their interpretation of available data relevant to the clinical scenario and describe how this data impacts their clinical practice. The faculty will provide a consensus correct answer with supporting data from the recent published literature..

Target Audience

This program is designed to meet the interest of radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiation biologists and residents-in-training.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the substantial heterogeneity that exists within these tumor types and understand the prognostic and predictive variables that allow for the selection of the appropriate therapy
  • Discuss recent literature supporting the role of radiation therapy in the multidisciplinary management of CNS tumors
  • Discuss key imaging modalities and features to differentiate recurrent tumor and treatment effect and to identify brain tumor micmics
