To improve patient care and outcomes, focusing on results and science of the treatment, rather than the delivery. 

Advances in the applications, technologies and methodologies of Radiosurgery continue to evolve rapidly, creating a need for continual learning.  This meeting is designed to disseminate new scientific findings and technical innovations and expand basic knowledge relevant to clinical practice and to the improvement of patient outcomes.

The educational elements of this program are targeted at surgeons, oncologist of all disciplines, physicists, nurses, therapists and other professionals involved in Radiosurgery.  Attendees will receive state-of-the-art practice information relating to radiation and surgical oncology.  Embracing the multidisciplinary approach to cancer care is essential to quality care.  Research presented from medical and allied professionals will enhance the interdisciplinary nature of the program.  The program will include presentations on standard, investigational and experimental therapeutics, treatment planning, alternative fractionation, emerging technologies, and physics.  These topics are presented in a combination of panel discussions, proffered papers and posters.  Educational sessions provide attendees with an essential review of timely topics,  Panel discussions emphasize current controversies.  Proffered papers and poster presentations represent new research findings.  This combination provides complementary coverage of a broad range of topics relevant to radiation oncology and members of the multidisciplinary cancer care team.

This continuing medical education activity is designed to meet the interest of surgeons, radiation oncologists, physicians working in related specialties, residents, radiation physicists, dosimetrists, radiation therapists, radiation oncology nurses, radiation oncology administrators and all other health professionals involved in the field of oncology.
