MCI Radiation Oncology Grand Rounds – Proton Therapy for Bone and Soft Tissue Sarcomas

Miami, FL US
March 20, 2020

Proton therapy has successfully been used to treat a variety of sarcomas with a low incidence of side effects.  This means that higher doses of radiation can be used to treat bone and soft tissue sarcomas, and that these higher doses will cause minimal damage to other healthy tissues.

During this conference participants will understand optimal integration of radiation therapy with surgery and systemic therapy for bone and soft tissue sarcoma.  
 

Target Audience
