Neuro-oncology – Brain MetastasesFaculty: Anthony L. Asher, Clark C. Chen, Veronica Chiang, Arjun Sahgal, Michael Schulder
This webinar will address the theoretical advantages and disadvantages of, as well as the evidence basis for, adjuvant vs. neoadjuvant radiation for microsurgically resected brain metastases; radiosurgical outcomes for patients with both numerous and larger brain metastases; clinical factors and planning and treatment options that may affect outcomes; and how to counsel patients on the role of radiosurgery in the era of immunotherapy and targeted therapies.
Neuro-oncology – Skull Base Tumors and GliomasFaculty: Ashok R. Asthagiri, Michael W. McDermott, Ajay Niranjan, Nader Pouratian, Isaac Yang
Learn about the natural history and evidence basis for the efficacy and risks of radiosurgery for acoustic neuromas and meningioma; the indications, outcomes, predictors of outcomes, and complications of radiosurgery of pituitary adenomas; and how to counsel patients on the role of radiosurgery in the management of high-grade gliomas.
Functional RadiosurgeryFaculty: Ron L. Alterman, Nicholas M. Barbaro, Alessandra A. Gorgulho, Joseph S. Neimat, Sameer A. Sheth
Review the relative efficacy of radiosurgery for trigeminal neuralgia, including predictors of outcomes, the sustainability of the response, and the associated risks; the indications, techniques, outcomes, and complications of radiosurgical thalamotomy for tremor and psychiatric indications; and how to counsel patients on the role of radiosurgery in the management of epilepsy.
Cerebrovascular RadiosurgeryFaculty: Douglas S. Kondziolka, John Lee, Cheng-Chia Lee, Michael W. McDermott, Jason P. Sheehan
This webinar will address the natural history and evidence basis for the efficacy and risks of radiosurgery for arteriovenous malformations; the indications, outcomes, predictors of outcomes, and complications of dose and volume-staged radiosurgery for large intracranial AVMs; and how to counsel patients on the role of radiosurgery in the management of dural arteriovenous fistulas and cavernous malformations.
Spinal RadiosurgeryFaculty: Lilyana Angelov, Samuel T. Chao, Peter C. Gerszten, Tania B. Kaprealian, Jason A. Weaver
