RTT 317 Clinical Concepts III

Course Description

Current principle and practice of treatment for cancers of the genitourinary, lymphoreticular, musculoskeletal, integumentary, hematopoietic, endocrine systems and pediatric cancers are emphasized.

Learning Outcomes

  • Given a clinical scenario determine the most effective overall treatment plan for cancers of the genitourinary, lymphoreticular, musculoskeletal, integumentary, hematopoietic, endocrine systems and pediatric cancers.
  • Determine the most appropriate beam modifiers, immobilization devices and set-up devices to use for cancers of the geitourinary, lyphoreticular, musculoskeletal, integumentary, hematopoietic, endocrine systems and pediatric cancers given cancer stage, histology, and grade.
  • Determine the most appropriate beam energy doses for cancers of the genitourinary, lymphoereticular, musculoskeletal, integumentary, hematopoietic, endocrine systems and pediatric cancers given a cancer stage, histology, and grade.
  • Determine the most appropriate treatment techniques and modlaieties for cancers of the genitourinary, lymphoreticular, musculoskeletal, integumentary, hemtopoietic, endocrine systems and pediatric cancers. Analyze a given cancer state, histology, and grade.
  • Analyze port films to determine the area being treated and the techniques used.
  • Using the natural history of a particular cancer, determine what structures the treatment field should contain for cancers of the genitourinary, lymphoreticular, musculoskeletal, integumentary, hematopoietic, endocrine systems and pediatric cancers.
  • Evaluate a given treatment plan to determine appropriateness based on cancer type, stage and grade for cancers of the genitourinary, lymphoreticular, musculoskeletal, integumentary, hematopoietic, endocrine systems and pediatric cancers.
