eContouring for GI Cancer - SA-CME

Meeting: ASTRO's  2017 Annual Meeting
Date: September 25, 2017
Time: 10:45- 12:15 p.m.

Session description:
Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is becoming a standard technique for colorectal liver metastases and some primary liver tumors. SBRT is also being used more commonly for unresectable locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma (LAPC). This requires more in-depth knowledge of abdominal anatomy and organs at risk. Also, with more focal techniques, there is a need to use motion management techniques. This session will cover the basics of abdominal anatomy, including imaging of pancreatic tumors and liver tumors and techniques to deliver radiotherapy more focally by incorporating motion management options.

Target Audience

This continuing medical education activity is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, radiation biologists, radiation physicists, dosimetrists, oncologists working in related specialties, radiation therapists, radiation oncology nurses, radiation oncology administrators, diagnostic radiologists and all other health professionals involved in the field of radiation oncology.

Learning Objectives

  • 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.
