Plenary session recap
Plenary session studies explore artificial intelligence, radiation in combination with other therapies across five major disease sites
Monday afternoon, ASTRO President Geraldine Jacobson, MD, MPH, MBA, FASTRO, gave her Presidential Address, offering a forward-thinking message on how artificial intelligence (AI) and emotional intelligence (EI) can shape the future of radiation oncology.
Monday morning, Ruha Benjamin, PhD, gave a timely and thought-provoking keynote: Race to the Future? Reimagining the Default Settings of Technology and Society.
AI and Risk
This Plenary session abstract discusses multi-modal artificial intelligence models and provides an important update on risk stratification for PCa patients.
Jonathan Yang, MD, PhD, et al. from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center reported the results of a phase II randomized trial comparing proton craniospinal irradiation (pCSI) and photon involved-field radiotherapy (IFRT) for patients with leptomeningeal metastasis (LM) from non-small cell lung or breast carcinoma.
The role of stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) in oligometastatic disease continues to evolve and the identification of which patients may benefit from SABR remains an ongoing clinical question.
RT for AFib
Stereotactic body radiation therapy has been used to successfully treat ventricular tachycardia with a technique that has been referred to as STereotactic Arrhythmia Radioablation (STAR).
