Patient Care and Research

ASTRO Think Tank: Genetic Determinants in Radiation Oncology

February 22, 2019
ASTRO Headquarters, Arlington, Virginia

Increasingly, clinicians and patients are receiving information about their genome and mutations that may influence both patient care and outcomes. How clinicians and researchers handle this influx of new genomic data and manage how patients make critical decisions about their care was debated during this one day meeting.

Topics discussed included:

  • Radiation Sensitivity Observed from Murine Models
  • Second Malignancy Expectations from Low-dose Baseline vs. Mutation Status
  • Current and Expected Genomic Screening and Incidence of Various Mutations
  • Review of the Current Clinical Data on Toxicity Related to Genomic Mutations
