Dr. Mehta on New Technologies in Radiation for Lung Cancer

Somehow I posted the last podcast from Dr. Mehta’s presentation on New Developments in Radiation Oncology for Lung Cancer but overlooked part 5 that should have preceded it. Here’s that longer portion that covers several new advances in the technologies now being incorporated into radiation therapy for lung cancer.

Here’s the video and audio versions of his podcast, along with the associated transcript and figures.

Dr. Mehta on Moving Radiation Developments into Metastatic Lung Cancer

 

Finishing his presentation on new techniques in radiation oncology being applied to lung cancer, Dr. Vivek Mehta turns to the setting of metastatic lung cancer and the potential though still debatable utility of focused radiation to treat oligometastatic disease (metastatic, but with very limited spread of the cancer). Here’s the last podcast from his presentation, in both video and audio formats, along with the associated transcript and figures.

Defining a Role for Sterotactic Radiosurgery in Lung Cancer: Podcast 4 by Dr. Mehta

Here’s part 4 of the presentation by Swedish Cancer Institute radiation oncologist Dr. Vivek Mehta, in which he provides additional data supporting a growing role for stereotactic radiosurgery, also referred to as stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in lung cancer.  There is discussion of the data supporting its role in medically inoperable patients and also consideration of extending its use to patients able to tolerate surgery, so now asking whether SBRT can substitute for the historical “gold standard” of surgery in patients who would otherwise undergo resection. 

Below you’ll find the video and audio versions of the podcast, along with the transcript and figures.

Dr. Mehta on Early Successes and Open Questions with SBRT

Here’s the third part of Dr. Vivek Mehta’s webinar presentation on refining radiation for lung cancer. This podcast focuses on some of the early encouraging work with stereotactic body radiation therapy, or SBRT, along with discussion of some current open questions on this technology.

Here are the video and audio versions of the podcast, along with the associated transcript and figures for it.

Dr. Mehta on Refining Radiation for Lung Cancer: The Rationale for Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT)

We continue Dr. Mehta’s webinar presentation with a discussion of the potential mechanisms by which we may be able to improve the efficacy and safety of radiation for lung cancer.  This leads to a discussion of the rationale for stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), which is very focal radiation administered over just a few treatments at a relatively high dose each time, rather than several weeks of lower dose radiation over a broader area.  

Here are the video and audio versions of the podcast on this part of the webinar, along with the transcript and figures for the program:
