eContouring for Prostate Cancer - SA-CME
Meeting: ASTRO's 2017 Annual Meeting
Date: September 25, 2017
Time: 4:15 pm - 5:45 pm
With the high cure rate potential of localized prostate cancer, it is more important than ever in this disease to avoid a marginal miss with the advanced technologies available at many practices. How to appropriately localize the prostate and account for daily organ motion is of critical importance in this regard and this course will ensure that participants are exposed to extensive contouring techniques, both on CT as well as MRI. In addition, the clinical scenario of treating a patient post prostatectomy can be very challenging and highlighting the relevant anatomy is of significant importance to ensure that all of the regions at risk receive adequate dosage. This course will review the relevant anatomy on both CT and MRI imaging and review with the participants the expert’s contours.
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.
- Explain the CT and MRI anatomy of the prostate and adjacent normal tissue structures.
- Describe the pitfalls of prostate contouring for planned external beam radiotherapy of the prostate.
- Identify and critique the contours drawn during the session for several test cases.
