Management of Central Nervous System Metastases with Radiation Therapy and the Neurocognitive Impacts
Medical oncologists, hematologists, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, internists, surgeons, geneticists, palliative care specialists, basic and translational research scientists, residents, fellows, and medical students need to receive regular updates on advances in the diagnosis and management of hematologic disorders and malignancies. The series aims to expand the knowledge base of learners in these topic areas, improve their clinical competencies and research skills, enhance patient care, and improve outcomes.
Physicians, medical students, fellows, residents, and other health professionals.
At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:
Learn the basics of radiation therapy for brain disease.
Identify the different management techniques for brain metastases.
Develop strategies to employ techniques to minimize toxicity of radiation for brain metastases.
Discuss the long-term impact radiation therapy can have on the brain.
