Optimizing Post-Prostatectomy Radiotherapy: A Multi-Disciplinary Perspective
The joint ASTRO/AUA guideline for post-prostatectomy radiotherapy was published in 2013 and provides guidance when offering patients either adjuvant or salvage radiotherapy. While it was written to influence clinical management, multiple reports suggest that this has not occurred on a broad scale. Furthermore, new prospective data has added complexity to this clinical situation. Today, there are even more questions that regard the optimal timing of radiotherapy, treatment field design, and when to offer hormonal therapy. More contemporary issues regarding the availability of genomic signatures, and questions regarding the potential benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy. A contemporary update can therefore help update attendees who may be unfamiliar with many of the nuances introduced by these developments. A pair of academic radiation oncologists and a leading urologic oncologist will comprise the educational panel.
This activity was originally recorded at ASTRO’s 2017 Annual Meeting, September 24-27, 2017 in San Diego, CA.
This program is designed to meet the interest of radiation oncologists, radiation therapists, and radiation dosimetrists.
After this session, attendees should be able to:
• Understand the quality of evidence that supports post-prostatectomy radiotherapy, hormonal therapy and chemotherapy.
• Become familiar with the role of genomic signatures to stratify patients for adjuvant therapies following prostatectomy.
