7° Simposio Annuale di Radioterapia UPMC
UPMC: 7th Annual Radiotherapy Symposium

The UPMC Annual Radiotherapy Symposium, entitled “Interactions between New Systemic Therapies and Stereotactic Radiation Treatments”, will take place on December 13th and 14th 2019 in Rome (Residenza di Ripetta)

The widespread and steady use of new drugs in oncology has resulted in the need to optimize their interaction and synergy with stereotactic radiation therapies. In modern radiotherapy, the use of advanced technology provides better local control of many cancers, reducing the side effects and duration of treatments. Simultaneously, systemic therapies improved control over the spread of diseases and quality of life of patients with locally advanced or metastatic tumors. These new instruments at our disposal in our fight against cancer raise questions of the relevance of some high volume radiation treatments and their doses. The Symposium will involve national and international speakers and moderators.
The event is free and accredited on Agenas for the provision of 11 CME credits (for italian participants).

100 health care professionals with the following roles and specializations:

  • PHYSICIANS: Gastroenterology, Geriatrics, Respiratory Diseases, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Oncology, Radiotherapy, General Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, Neurosurgery, Urology, Nuclear Medicine, Neuroradiology, Radiodiagnostics, and General Medicine (family doctors)
  • PHYSICISTS: Medical Physics
