Description

“Radiation Oncology: Review of Basics and New Techniques”
This lecture will review radiobiology, radiation physics, and clinical management of veterinary radiation oncology patients. Radiobiology topics will include fractionation schemes, dose response relationships including alpha beta ratio, estimation of biological equivalence between fractionation schemes, radiation side effects, and other topics. Radiation physics will include basic photon, electron, and alternative radiation interactions. We will cover external beam therapy, brachytherapy, plesiotherapy, and alternative techniques. Treatment techniques including manual point dose calculation, 3D conformal planning, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy, Stereotactic Radiotherapy and Image Guided Radiation Therapy will be discussed. Portal dosimetry and on-board imaging will be reviewed. Typical tumor types and response to therapy will be covered including pertinent literature review.
