The Management of Gynecologic Cancers
This course will cover the management of gynecologic malignancies, concentrating on cervical (25 minutes), uterine (25 minutes), and vulvar cancers (15 minutes), with time for questions from the audience (15 minutes). Participants will review the seminal trials and manuscripts which guide current, standard of care treatments. Special attention will be paid to recently reported trials, and the implications that these may have upon patient care. These recent developments will include a discussion of image guided brachytherapy for cervical cancer, controversies in the management of high intermediate risk uterine cancer, and the application of IMRT in vulvar cancer.
This program is designed to meet the interest of radiation oncologists, radiation therapists, and radiation dosimetrists.
- Identify both the potential benefits of image guided brachytherapy for cervical cancer, and the challenges of implementation in a variety of practice environments.
- Describe the results of recent clinical trials in Uterine cancer, and determine the implications of these results to the attendee’s practice.
- Outline new approaches to the management and treatment of vulvar cancer, including the use of chemotherapy, sentinel lymph node biopsy, and IMRT.
