FROGG #8 Genitourinary Sessions for Radiation Oncology supported by Mundipharma
Topic: Radiotherapy for renal cell carcinoma: renaissance of an overlooked approach Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the 8th most common cancer in Australia. When localised it is managed predominantly with surgery and less frequently with interventional thermal ablation techniques. RCC is considered traditionally radioresistant and radiotherapy has limited utility outside of occasional palliation in advanced disease. With the advent of newer techniques such as stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR), radiotherapy is enjoying a renaissance in its uptake in the management of RCC. In order to keep up-to-date with advances in knowledge in the role of radiotherapy for primary RCC, this lecture will explore several fundamental concepts. This includes the radiobiology of RCC, technical aspects of SABR delivery in primary RCC, use of SABR in for larger renal masses, outcomes of SABR with solitary kidneys, renal function and nephron sparing approaches with SABR, and the use of SABR as a cytoreductive therapy to the primary in advanced RCC. Learning objectives - Radiobiology of radio resistance in renal cell carcinoma - Indications for SABR in primary RCC and expected outcomes - Technical considerations for SABR in primary RCC - Outcomes expected for SABR in metastatic RCC - SABR in the context of systemic therapies Meet our guest speaker: Associate Professor Shankar Siva (PhD) is a radiation oncologist and leads the stereotactic body radiotherapy (SABR) service at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. He has over 200 manuscript publications, including original works in leading journals such as Lancet Onc, JAMA Onc, European Urology and Journal of Thoracic Oncology. He leads 5 international multicentre trials through the TransTasman Radiation Oncology Group (TROG) with a focus in SABR. His current research program focuses on high-tech radiotherapy delivery, in the context of SABR and immunotherapy combinations, oligometastatic disease, lung, kidney cancer and prostate cancer.
