Gynecological Oncology in the Era of Precision Medicine - AM2019
This panel session brings together four experts who can present recent advances in gynecological oncology research and how it can guide our current practice. Cervical and endometrial cancers have a varied response to treatment and there have been several recent discoveries in how molecular and imaging markers can help risk-
stratify patients. Topics in this session will include 1) novel imaging markers of prognosis and treatment response, 2) recent advances in the surgical approach to cervical cancer, 3) molecular markers of prognosis and use in clinical decision making, and 4) novel targeted therapies in gynecological cancers.
The meeting is designed to meet the interests of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, radiation biologists and residents.
- Describe how imaging can help predict prognosis and response to treatment for cervical cancers.
- Describe a molecular marker of prognosis and how it can help guide treatment decisions.
- Describe how immunotherapy and radiotherapy have been combined in the treatment of cervical cancer.
