The Role of Radiation in Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma in Community Practice
This session provides an in-depth discussion of the role of radiation therapy in Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma (DLBCL). This is the most common type of lymphoma seen in a community practice, and, with recent advancements in treatment, the role of radiation therapy is evolving. Four academic radiation oncologists review the role of radiation therapy in different scenarios. The first scenario is an overview of DLBCL including the evolution of modern treatment and specific clinical and pathologic prognosticators. The second reviews the management recommendations for early-stage DLBCL and when radiation therapy is indicated. The third evaluates the role of radiation in the salvage setting for refractory or relapse. The last presentation is treatment options in the palliative setting both as a bridge to CAR-T cell therapy and non-chemotherapy patients.
