eContouring for Gastrointestinal Cancer Case Library
The eContouring for Gastrointestinal Cancer Case Library contains 1 case, case vingette, and reference documents from cases from the 2017 ASTRO Annual Meeting. These cases give users the ability to practice contouring and to receive a metric score to compare the user's contours to that of expert faculty.
Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is increasingly applied to locally advanced pancreas cancer. Because of the potential risks of delivering high-dose radiotherapy to the sensitive organs of the abdomen, in-depth knowledge of the abdominal anatomy and normal tissue dose constraints are necessary. Cooperative group trials of conventional chemoradiation have demonstrated that protocol violations were common and were associated with worse outcome.
This program is designed to meet the interest of radiation oncologists, radiation therapists, and radiation dosimetrists.
- Identify basic anatomy of abdomen and appearance of pancreatic adenocarcinoma as seen on imaging studies.
- Identify common sites of recurrence for pancreatic cancer and recognize the imaging appearances of these recurrences.
- Improve radiation therapy delivery through understanding the contouring recommendations for the gross tumor volume (GTV) and clinical target volumes (CTV) for pancreatic cancer, both in the locally advanced and post-operative setting.
- Use imaging, treatment planning, and treatment delivery techniques to account for respiratory motion.
