Description

Topic: Implementing State-of-the-Art Radiation Therapy in Veterinary Practice
The purpose of this 2-hour CE presentation is to provide a general overview of radiation therapy in veterinary medicine. This presentation will provide a brief overview of basic physics and biology of external beam radiation. We will also discuss the evolution of radiation therapy and how it has impacted our ability to treat cancers that were previously deemed untreatable. We will discuss indications for referral, reviewing commonly treated tumor types and evidence-based outcomes that support the use of stereotactic radiation in veterinary medicine. Finally, we will define the role of the veterinary technician in implementing radiation therapy in veterinary practice.
Exam offered and MVMA CE certificate issued following presentation.

Objectives

Attendees should have an understanding of basic radiation physics and biology, so they can answer simple questions from clients about external beam radiation therapy.
Attendees should understand the difference between a clinical setup, IMRT, and SRS/VMAT treatment plans. Attendees should take home an understanding of when radiation is indicated, ie - what types of cancer are effectively treated with external beam radiation therapy.
