This 90-minute presentation will review the state-of-the-art treatment approaches for lung cancer. The presentation will include best-practices for lung cancer: (1) role of lung cancer screening, (2) staging, (3) appropriate clinical work-up, (4) incorporating multi-modality imaging, (5) advanced radiation treatment planning (IMRT, SABR, hypofractionated), (6) using modern image-guidance and advanced delivery techniques (non-coplanar therapy, proton therapy, MR-guided radiotherapy). The course will also review the relevant evidence-based literature on the incorporation of radiotherapy for stages I-IV for Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), oligometastatic NSCLC, as well as limited and extensive stage SCLC.
The activity is designed to meet the interests of practicing radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, medical and clinical physicists, nurses and all other health professionals involved in the field of radiation oncology.
Upon completion of this live activity, attendees should be able to do the following:
1. Identify the role of lung cancer screening, best-practices using low-dose CT for lung cancer screening, who are the optimal candidates to offer lung cancer screening, and the best treatment options for screen-detected early stage lung cancer
2. Offer best-practice multimodality therapies for limited and extensive stage small cell lung cancer including incorporating prophylactic cranial irradiation and consolidative thoracic radiation therapy when appropriate.
3. Determine who are inoperable early stage NSCLC lung cancer patients, and use best-practices to deliver the highest quality SABR for these patients
4. Offer optimal chemoradiotherapy to patients with unresectable stage III NSCLC in conjunction with consolidative durvalumab.
5. Identify who are the optimal candidates with oligometastatic or oligoprogressive NSCLC that will most likely derive a clinical benefit with aggressive local consolidative therapies (e.g. surgery or SABR).
