Comprehensive Review of Radiation Oncology consists of 30 one-hour lectures spanning a wide range of radiation therapy treatments that require a complex set of processes: diagnosis, consultation, simulation, contouring target volumes and normal tissue structures, treatment planning, chart review, treatment delivery, quality assurance, and patient follow-up. Authoritative and clinically experienced faculty guide you to more efficient, safer, and higher quality care for each patient. This online CME program will help you to better:

  • Describe delivery speed and dose rates of FLASH radiation therapy
  • List head and neck tumors for which radiotherapy is beneficial
  • Compare radiotherapy for brain metastases and primary brain tumors
  • Summarize differences in therapy for non-small versus small cell lung cancer
  • Discuss therapy for upper and lower GI malignancies
  • Contrast decision making involved in therapy after mastectomy and after breast conservation

Expand Your Skills

Available online, Comprehensive Review of Radiation Oncology provides a maximum of 29.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits and access to unbiased, evidence-based content and case-based reviews so you can expand your knowledge and incorporate the latest guidelines into your daily practice.
