Presidential Symposium II - EL03 - Imaging at the Micrometer Scale is Possible and Required for RT to Cure Metastatic Disease
10:15 AM - 11:45 AM
Location: Room W178
Session Type: Special Session
0.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
We will review the currently available imaging modalities for high sensitivity detection of metastatic disease, and discuss the practicalities of integrating these imaging modalities into patient management. We will debate and discuss the following topics: 1) Is radiation is needed to clear micrometer scale disease, or could systemic therapy achieve this goal? 2) How should we use imaging advancements to improve radiation therapy; and 3) What are ideal imaging targets and how do we select from what is currently available?
During this session attendees will be engaged in mini debates. The session will begin with 2 level setting talks and then attendees will be presented 3 different topics sequentially with time to have small group discussion and mini debates after each topic presentation. The session will end with a wrap-up and take home message.
