Clinical and Technical Considerations for Post-Operative SBRT - An Emerging Paradigm Shift


Arjun Sahgal, MD, Professor of Radiation Oncology and Surgery and Deputy Chief of Radiation Oncology at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Odette Cancer Center at the University of Toronto discusses the clinical and technical considerations for post-operative SBRT and demonstrates an emerging paradigm shift.

He provides case examples in which post-operative SBRT was completed, and discusses how to determine possible fracture rate and the rational to prophylactically stabilize.
