Summary:
Join us as Alan Katz, MD from Flushing Radiation Oncology discusses his 9-year experience treating organ-confined prostate cancer with SABR using a variety of platforms and technologies. This webinar will trace the rationale for treating prostate cancer with some form of hypo-fractionation back 50 years. It will examine results with moderate hypo-fractionation as a springboard towards more extreme hypo-fractionation as is used with SBRT. Dr. Katz shares his follow up results of 9 years SBRT for all levels of risk. Control rates, QOL and toxicity will be discussed in detail. It will include discussion of two platforms for SBRT. Finally, other experiences with prostate SBRT will be compared.
