The course illustrates the global view of Radiation for Hematologic Malignancies via the following abstracts:
- Assessing the Role of Radiation Therapy for Primary Mediastinal Large B-Cell Lymphoma in the Setting of PET Avid Disease after Chemotherapy
- An Excess Mortality Risk Analysis of Proton Beam versus Optimal Photon Radiotherapy for Mediastinal Hodgkin Lymphoma: Who May Benefit Most?
- Efficacy of Low Dose Radiotherapy in Head & Neck MALT Lymphoma
- A Prospective Trial of Radiation Therapy Efficacy and Toxicity for Localized Mucosa-associated Lymphoid Tissue (MALT) Lymphoma
- Is Bridging Radiation (RT) Safe with B Cell Maturation Antigen–targeting Chimeric Antigenic Receptor T Cells (CART-BCMA) Therapy?
- Bridging Radiotherapy before CAR-T for High Grade Lymphoma ― Feasibility and Efficacy
- Effective Pain Control with Very Low Dose Palliative Radiotherapy for Multiple Myeloma Patients with Painful Osseous Lesions
- Radiation Therapy for Refractory High-grade B-cell Lymphoma with MYC and BCL2 and/or BCL6 Rearrangements
The course is designed to meet the interests of practicing radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, medical and clinical physicists, surgeons, physicists, nurses, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, radiation therapists, radiation dosimetrists, and all other health professionals involved in the field of radiation oncology.
Upon completion of this activity, learners should be able to do the following:
- Determine how to use PET/CT responses to decide which patients with PMBCL may need adjuvant therapy.
- Discuss how radiation target overlap with the heart can impact the decision to refer for proton therapy in Hodgkin lymphoma.
- Explain the different dose regimens in use for MALT lymphomas, and how auto-immune disease may impact this.
- Describe the evolving role of radiation therapy in CAR T-cell therapy in hematologic malignancies.
- Describe the pain response with low dose RT for myeloma.
