Pediatric Cancer-2018 Refresher
Pediatric radiation oncology represents a small but crucial part of clinical practice in radiation oncology. As such the clinical practice, clinical research, and the application of newer technologies (such as proton therapy) are crucial in this setting and not likely readily available to all practitioners. This lecture will attempt to update participants as to some of the key findings in recent pediatric radiation oncology clinical issues.
This meeting is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists.
- Define the role of radiotherapy and the genetic cross-section of ependymomas and how that might influence the use of radiotherapy as well as long-term prognosis.
- Identify the changing role of molecular profiling and risk stratification as well as their impact upon treatment for patients with medolloblastoma.
- Break down the scope, role, clinical data, and potential benefits of proton therapy in treating pediatric patients.
- Daniel A. Hamstra, MD, PhD is employed by Texas Oncology and receives compensation/remuneration/funding from Augmenix.
