This year, ASTRO will be launching a new webinar series called "Clinical Controversies." These webinars will feature timely topics in radiation oncology in a point-counterpoint format.
Three "Clinical Controversies" webinars will feature issues in radiation oncology debated by leaders in the field. The first of these webinars will be held Wednesday, January 25 at 5:00 pm Eastern time. Paul Nguyen, MD, will moderate as W. Robert Lee, MD, MS, MEd, FASTRO, and Anthony D’Amico, MD, PhD, FASTRO, discuss “Should Hypofractionation be the standard of care for prostate cancer?” Visit the Webinar section of ASTRO.org for pricing information and to register.
On Thursday, April 27, 2017, Lilie Lin, MD, will moderate Eleanor Elizabeth Harris, MD, and Gary Freedman, MD, on “Throw ‘caution’ to the wind? Discussion of challenging cases for accelerated partial breast irradiation." Cases will be presented for this webinar, with different treatment approaches for each.
In the fall of 2017, John Suh, MD, FASTRO, and Eric Chang, MD, FASTRO, will discuss the pros and cons of whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) versus stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for brain metastasis. Dr. Suh and Dr. Chang have previously debated on this topic—it should be a very lively and fun event.
Participants can earn SA-CME for attending these webinars. The number of credits available varies by webinar. Each live webinar will also be recorded and made available on ASTRO’s website on-demand. Further your education by joining faculty leaders and your peers for one of ASTRO’s new webinars.
