Precision Radiation Therapy: Low- to Intermediate-Risk Prostate Cancer – Summary:

Michael Zelefsky, MD, discusses the need for advances in molecular imaging and radiomics and for integrating these techniques with precision radiation therapy in order to improve selective dose delivery for low- and intermediate-risk prostate cancer patients. He describes evolving methods of radiation delivery, dose planning, reducing radiation exposure to normal tissues, and delineation of the dominant intraprostatic lesion in this era of dose-escalation. 

About The 4th Global Summit on Precision Diagnosis and Treatment of Prostate Cancer:

The Global Summit on Precision Diagnosis and Treatment of Prostate Cancer is a multi-day, multi-disciplinary forum designated to informing health care stakeholders about topics including in-vitro fluid- and tissue-based molecular diagnostics, novel observation strategies such as active surveillance, and novel therapeutic interventions. Along with this forum’s efforts to form a consensus on the future of prostate diagnostics and precision care, it aims to create an educational and research strategy for its realization. Dr. Zelefsky presented this lecture during the 4th iteration of this Summit in 2019.
