WEBINAR: Pancreatic Cancer Outcome Highlights via On-table Adaptive MR-guided Radiation

Pancreatic Cancer Outcome Highlights via On-table Adaptive MR-guided Radiation Therapy, MRI guided RT.

The webinar "Pancreatic Cancer Outcome Highlights via On-table Adaptive MR-guided Radiation" was presented by Parag Parikh, BSE, M.D., associate professor of radiation oncology and biomedical engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, and Percy Lee, M.D., associate professor and vice chair of education for the Department of Radiation Oncology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center. They will share their ongoing experience in using MR-guided radiation therapy to treat pancreatic cancer.

The webinar took place Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2017.

This presentation includes highlights of significant outcomes and treatment protocols currently used with their patients. The webinar will compliment the presenters' poster published at ASTRO17, “Higher Maximum Biologic Effective Dose Utilizing Adaptive MRI Guided Radiation Therapy Improves Survival of Inoperable Pancreatic Cancer Patients," which provided a retrospective review of 42 locally-advanced pancreatic cancer patients treated at four institutions:

- Washington University and Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis

- University of California, Los Angeles Health System and Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center

- University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center in Madison

- VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam, Netherlands

The study found that stereotactic dosing regimens guided by MR imaging using the MRIdian system and daily online adaptation had led to significantly prolonged patient survival and resulted in favorably low toxicity.
