CE Events and Workshops

VCS Seminar: Dr. Ilektra Athanasiadi

"Radiation Induced Brain Injury"

Presenter: Dr. Ilektra Athanasiadi, 1st Year Resident, Radiation Oncology

Radiation therapy is standard of care for treatment of brain tumors in human and veterinary patients. The use of advanced technologies for treatment planning and delivery of radiation allows for more sparing of normal tissues. However, late side effects such as brain necrosis and neurocognitive dysfunction are still major late adverse events which decrease the quality of life and increase mortality. The underlying mechanisms of radiation injury to the CNS are poorly understood necessitating further investigation in animal models.

One (1) continuing education (CE) credit is offered for this seminar.
