Philadelphia CyberKnife recently had two posters presented at the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology’s annual meeting from October 18 – 21 in San Antonio, TX.
The American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO) is dedicated to improving patient care through education, clinical practice, advancement of science and advocacy. Radiation oncologists, medical physicists, dosimetrists, radiation therapists, radiation oncology nurses and nurse practitioners, biologists, physician assistants and practice administrators comprise ASTRO’s more than 10,500 members, making it the largest radiation oncology organization of its kind. These medical professionals, found at hospitals, cancer treatment centers and academic research facilities around the globe, make up the radiation therapy treatment teams that are critical in the fight against cancer.
The two posters presented at the meeting were Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) for Pelvic or Para-Aortic Recurrence From Gynecologic Malignancies, presented by Shaakir Hasan, and The Equivalence of Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) for Prostate Cancer Stratified by 2015 NCCN Risk Groups, presented by Genevieve Manahan.
