Living in interesting times: Paradigm shifts in lung cancer management?
As a steady stream of lung cancer trial results can create more questions than answers, the program will focus on areas of practice where the greatest change is anticipated in the coming years. It also includes a radiotherapy planning workshop to address some of the challenges in thoracic radiotherapy.
Tuesday 15 October
Advances in management of oligometastatic and primary liver cancer
Recent technical advances in treatment of liver metastases and primary liver cancer are expanding the treatment options available for patients. Experts in the field will outline the role of current local and ablative treatment options and the growing use of precision radiotherapy in these settings.
Wednesday 16 October
Precision radiation for biliary and pancreatic cancers
The advent of precision radiotherapy techniques for pancreatic and biliary cancers offers new opportunities to address the unmet need for treatment and improve the outcome of patients with these cancers. We will explore options to optimise radiotherapy for these patients, including a hands on radiotherapy planning workshop.
Clinical oncology workshops
