This focused talk will provide radiation oncologists with the up-to-date management of patients with lymphoma, including clinical decision making on who benefits from radiotherapy, the optimal dose/fractionation, and technical aspects of treatment including involved site/node radiotherapy and advanced radiation techniques. New trial data will be put in context with existing treatment paradigms, thereby providing attendees a framework on how radiotherapy for lymphoma is integrated with systemic therapies (if applicable) and diagnostic imaging, including PET/CT. Case-based studies will be integrated throughout the talk to highlight the potential role of modern radiation techniques to minimize radiation toxicity.
The meeting is designed to meet the interests of practicing radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, medical and clinical physicists, nurses and all other health professionals involved in the field of radiation oncology.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to do the following:
- Recognize the key role of radiotherapy in management of patients with lymphoma, including in the primary, adjuvant, salvage, and palliative settings.
- Describe how radiotherapy for patients with lymphoma interfaces with systemic therapy in the era of PET.
- Outline strategies to minimize radiation toxicity, including involved site/node radiotherapy and advanced radiation techniques.
