Gynecologic - Refresher 2022
This educational activity addresses the recent knowledge acquired in endometrial cancer mainly the indications for adjuvant RT and chemotherapy and the role of concurrent chemoradiation in high risk and locally advanced disease as well as the optimal sequencing approach when both modalities are used. In addition, the interpretation and potential impact of molecular markers is discussed given the recent publication of the European guidelines which based their recommendations on molecular markers. Last, the interpretation and optimal management of sentinel LN biopsy and isolated tumor cells findings is addressed.
This course focus is on providing updates in the management of cervical cancer. It will focus on the use of modern imaging and treatment techniques which are rapidly being adopted. This includes discussions of intensity modulated radiation therapy in the post-operative and definitive settings as well as how to integrate image guided adaptive brachytherapy. In addition speaker reviews updated guidelines for target and organ at risk suggested doses for definitive cervical cancer treatment.
This activity is available from May 16, 2022, through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on May 15, 2025.
This activity was originally recorded at ASTRO’s virtual 2022 ASTRO Annual Refresher Course, March 27-27, 2022.
The activity is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists and radiation oncology residents, medical oncologists, surgeons, nurses and pathologists.
Upon completion of this live activity, attendees should be able to do the following:
- Determine the indications for systemic therapy and radiation therapy in non-metastatic endometrial cancer.
- Determine the appropriate sequencing approach for adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation.
- Explain the role of molecular markers and their potential impact on adjuvant therapy.
- Interpret the significance and interpretation of sentinel LN biopsy and isolated tumor cells in LN.
- Describe the rationale and evidence for image guided adaptive brachytherapy.
- Identify appropriate organ at risk dose constraints for image guided adaptive brachytherapy.
- Discuss recommended contouring guidelines for intensity modulated pelvic radiation therapy.
