Cone Beam CT Tumor Response and Lung Cancer Chemoradiation Outcome

September 14, 2015

Combined chemotherapy and radiation are standard in the treatment of locally advanced lung cancer. Does the tumor response by cone beam CT during radiation treatment have predictive value, the ability to estimate outcomes? Please join us for the September journal club to discuss:


Reduction in Tumor Volume by Cone Beam Computed Tomography Predicts Overall Survival in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Treated with Chemoradiation Therapy 


Dr. Salma Jabbour of Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey will discuss her research on the correlation of cone beam CT response during treatment to survival. Please follow her on Twitter for the conversation Friday September 18th 6 AM CST through the live chat Sunday September 20th, 8-9 PM CST.


Here are the topics we’ll be covering:

T1: What is the role of imaging in radiation treatment for lung cancer?

T2: How did you evaluate cone beam CT volume changes during treatment and link them to survival outcomes?

T3a: What were the findings of the study?

T3b: How might the cone beam CT findings influence decisions for changing treatment or predicting outcomes?

T4:  What are future directions for research ?


The article will hopefully be free at the Red Journal for you to read. We look forward to having you join us next weekend!
