Many practices are experiencing increasing numbers of cases for which irradiation of previously treated areas is required. This requires careful consideration of a range of radiobiological, dose discounts for prior treatments, clinical practice flow, documentation and treatment planning issues. This session will cover practical concepts related to treatment planning for re-irradiation in a variety of treatment sites. Many of the concepts are similar so the topics will be discussed together. Speakers will focus on (1) how to determine safe treatment planning goals for re-irradiation cases (2) how to sum dose using prior radiation treatment plans and current plans (3) advanced treatment planning tips for re-irradiation and adaptive therapy. Practical case-based examples will be used in addition to education regarding the basic concepts required.
