Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Training Program: 9/6/18-9/7/18 (RP1812B)

Dallas, TX US
September 6, 2018 to September 7, 2018

The primary focus of this two day, CME course is to help oncology professionals in both large and small centers, including both academic and community practice, learn about the proper implementation of a viable and effective SBRT treatment practice.

Covered topics include the evolution of SBRT (from its roots in image-guided 3-D conformal therapy and radiosurgery, toward ablation of tumors in the body), guidelines for conducting proper treatment, billing and compliance, physics, and dosimetry, with attention to the unique requirements of SBRT beyond conventional radiotherapy and IMRT.

Clinical outcomes and treatment patterns in spine, liver, lung, GI, and GU cancers, as well as a description of various treatment platforms in clinical operation, are also included.

Target Audience

Radiation oncologists, medial physicists, medical dosimetrists, administrators, and radiation therapists interested in implementing Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) into clinical practice are encouraged to attend this program.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Examine the rational and basic biology for delivering ablative doses of radiation to demarcated tumors using SBRT and image-guided techniques
  • Implement "on or off treatment protocol based upon mature clinical data
  • Identify treatment delivery options for initiating a clinical SBRT program at both large and small centers
  • Perform hands on skills in the identification and delivery of SBRT treatments via simulated exercises
  • Explain quality assurance and regulatory compliance requirements for implementing a clinical SBRT program
