The ultimate goal of radiation oncology research is to improve clinical care.  As a specialty, we tackle diverse research questions, addressing every type of cancer and encompassing cancer biology and radiation physics.  But despite our best efforts, evidence-based medicine cannot provide 1 clear

Accurate contouring of both tumors and critical avoidance structures improves tumor control and side effect profile. IGRT, SRS, and other techniques that minimize margin and take advantage of sharp dose fall-off, are unforgiving of inaccuracies in target and critical structure definition.

Knowledge of radiotherapy target volume delineation is crucial for accurate and effective delivery of radiotherapy for tumors of pancreatic and anorectal tumors. IMRT is being increasingly employed.

The increased conformality of planning techniques such as IMRT and VMAT make thoughtful, careful identification of anatomy and delineation of targets critical for good outcomes.

This course will involve the collaboration of three radiation oncologists with expertise in spine and lung SBRT.

The purpose of this eContouring course is to expand knowledge of breast and regional lymph node anatomy for radiation contouring and treatment planning, focusing on 3 clinical scenarios: partial breast radiation, whole breast radiation, and post-mastectomy radiation with comprehensive nodal cover

This course will provide education about defining clinical target volumes and their precise delineation in common clinical circumstances.
