Finding and Removing Small Nodules - Keeping Up with Technological Advances
There are many ongoing advances in patient safety in the context of radiation therapy delivery, clinical research on treatment options, and advanced techniques in radiotherapy delivery. Failure to stay informed leads to lower quality of care by practicing clinicians.
It is imperative that pulmonologists, surgeons and radiation oncologists remain current in technological advances in localization of small early stage lung cancers.
This session will delve into the current and shifting standard of care in the curative surgical treatment for small early stage lung cancers. It will also delve into techniques and advances in being able to localize, biopsy and potentially treat small early stage lung cancers. Discussions about selection of optimal methods will follow.
This meeting is designed to meet the interests of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, physicists, nurses, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, radiation therapists, radiation dosimetrists and pulmonologists.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to do the following:
- Identify the optimal surgical treatment for small early stage lung cancers.
- Identify bronchoscopic localization techniques.
- Identify molecular localization techniques.
