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. This requires more in-depth knowledge anatomy and organs at risk. This session will cover the basics of abdominal and pelvic anatomy and techniques to delivery radiotherapy more focally by incorporating motion management options. Given the common role of radiotherapy in the management of pancreatic and anorectal malignancies, detailed knowledge of treatment design is critical.
- Identify basic anatomy of the abdomen and pelvis and appearance of pancreatic, rectal adenocarcinoma, and anal squamous cell carcinoma as seen on imaging studies.
- Identify common sites of recurrence for pancreatic, rectal and anal cancer and recognize the imaging appearances of these recurrences.
- Improve radiation therapy delivery through understanding the contouring recommendations for target volumes, for pancreatic and rectal cancer in the preoperative setting, pancreatic cancer in the postoperative setting, and anal cancer in the definitive setting.
