Fourth Annual International Symposium on Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy and Stereotactic Radiosurgery
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
4401 Floridian Way Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830
Lake Buena Vista, Florida
The 2011 International Symposium on Cranial and Spine Radiosurgery (SRS) and
Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, will bring
together world leaders in brain-, spine- and body-targeted stereotactic radiation
modalities and techniques. Faculty and participants will have 3 days to discuss
advances in the treatment of benign and malignant tumors involving multiple organ
sites. A broad range of organ-specific technical and clinical experience will be
presented with opportunities to interact with faculty and system vendors.
Scientific abstracts will be solicited from attendees for poster presentation sessions.
Participants will be encouraged to bring cases for multidisciplinary management

Target Audience
Radiation Oncologists, Neurosurgeons, Medical Physicists, Neuro-Oncologists,
Medical Oncologists, Spine Surgeons and Neurologists.

Identify and discuss stereotactic radiation treatments for benign and malignant
• Describe novel targeting and imaging advances as they relate to CNS
Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy
• Integrate these advances in clinical practice
