Synopsis - Radiation Strategies for Breast Cancer: State-of-the-Art and Future Directions
Radiation therapy is the standard of care in many aspects of breast cancer treatment. In recent years, advances in treatment planning and delivery have enabled personalization of radiotherapy plans to maximize coverage while minimizing toxicity. Published evidence on dose fractionation and radiation fields have also established new standards of care compared to the previous decade.
Neoadjuvant strategies as well as new surgical standards in the management of the axilla, and improved Breast reconstruction techniques have presented a range of new adjuvant radiotherapy scenarios all which require a sound basis for treatment decision.
Dr Stauder brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience as he shares on these in his lecture update. He will also speak on his experience with inflammatory breast cancers and share his thoughts on the future of accelerated partial breast irradiation and the application of proton beam therapy in breast cancer.
