Contouring for MR-guided SBRT to Pancreas

The educational activity focuses on MR-guided radiation therapy contouring techniques tailored specifically for pancreatic cancer stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). Participants will engage in interactive sessions led by expert an radiation oncologist, gaining hands-on experience in utilizing MR imaging to delineate target volumes and critical structures with precision. Through case-based discussion, participants will enhance their skills in treatment planning, ultimately improving the quality of radiation therapy delivery for patients with pancreatic cancer.

Case Covered:
(This activity does not include access to the hands-on practice cases.)

MR-guided SBRT to Pancreas
62 y.o. female with a history of locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma, s/p bilary stent, duodenal stent, and FOLFIRINOX x12 cycles, who presents for consideration of MR-guided SBRT. She initially presented with abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. CT shows an ill-defined hypoattenuating pancreatic neck/body mass which encases the SMA and SMV, with significant narrowing of the SMV.


This activity was originally recorded on June 18, 2024, as an eContouring for Gastrointestinal Cancer Webinar. The webinar was sponsored by the ROI Juan A. del Regato Fund. The ROI is ASTRO’s Research Foundation and more information can be found at roinstitute.org.

 

Target Audience

This course is designed to meet the interest of radiation oncologists and radiation oncology residents.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this live activity, participants should be able to:

  • Demonstrate proficiency in utilizing MR imaging for accurate delineation of pancreatic tumors and critical surrounding structures.
  • Apply advanced contouring techniques specific to pancreatic cancer SBRT, considering tumor motion and adjacent organ-at-risk constraints.
