FROGG #7 - Genitourinary Sessions for Radiation Oncology Trainees, Supported by Mundipharma (Eligard)
Topic: The contemporary non-surgical management of muscle-invasive bladder cancer | a case-based discussion Bladder cancer patients are subject to health inequalities and limited access to suitable treatment options in different healthcare systems. It is important that all appropriate treatment options are made available. With the growing acceptance that surgery and radiation therapy provide equivalent outcomes for patients with organ-confined muscle-invasive bladder cancer, it is important to understand the role of chemotherapy, radiation therapy and radio sensitisation. International guidelines now advise discussion of both options with suitable patients with many patients opting for bladder preservation. Radiation therapy also plays an important role in patients unsuitable for radical treatment. Webinar attendees will be able to: 1. Select patients suitable for bladder preservation 2. Discuss the merits of different radiosensitisers 3. Understand the role of hypofractionation in the treatment of bladder cancer Meet our International guest speaker: Professor Ananya Choudhury is Chair and Honorary Consultant in Clinical Oncology. She joined The Christie in 2008 specialising in urology and sarcoma and has a strong interest in translational research.

Within the Division of Cancer Sciences, The University of Manchester, she is clinical lead for advanced radiotherapy, including the MRLinac project, and is co-Group Leader of The Translational Radiobiology Group. Over the past few years, Professor Choudhury has been involved with national concerns such as the Royal College of Radiologists, the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Clinical and Translational Radiotherapy Research Working Group (CTRad), the NCRI Bladder Clinical Studies Group and the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
