SBRT/SABR for Oligometastases: The Promise and The Peril - Best of ASTRO 2019

With increasing frequency, local therapy in the form of SBRT or hypofractionated radiation is being applied to patients with oligometastatic cancers as a means of attempting to improve survival outcomes, durability of systemic therapy treatment responses, etc.  However, it is apparent that not all of these indications are driven by evidence-based approaches or data from larger scale clinical trials.  With this session, we aim to provide an updated view of the principles relevant to treatment of oligometastatic disease and the data supporting its utilization.

This activity is available from December 23,2019  through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on December 22, 2022.
 
This activity was originally recorded at ASTRO’s 2019 Best of ASTRO, November 14-16, 2019  in Washington, DC.

Target Audience

The activity is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, radiation therapists, and radiation dosimetrists.

Learning Objectives

  • Summarize what evidence exists for the use of local therapy for oligometastatic cancers
  • Identify the continued questions that exist with regard to optimization of local therapy for oligometastatic cancers, i.e. optimal dose of radiation, timing of treatment (front line vs consolidation vs oligoprogression), integration with systemic therapy such as immunotherapy (for abscopal benefit), etc.
  • Describe active trials or ones under development that will provide a stronger basis for changes in standards of care for local therapy use in oligometastatic disease states.
