Deadline June 1, 2010!
6th International Conference of the International
Society of Intraoperative Radiation Therapy
Oct. 14 - 16, 2010
Fairmont Scottsdale • Scottsdale, Arizona, USA
Jointly Sponsored by
The International Society for
Intraoperative Radiation Therapy and
Continuing Medical Education Resources, Inc.
Course overview and intended audienCe
The 6th International Conference of the International Society of Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (ISIORT) will provide a broad
overview of recent clinical and technological advances in the field of intraoperative irradiation (IORT) and disease-site specific
outcomes. Invited lectures, oral abstracts and poster sessions will present knowledge and information that can be used by the attendees
to either adapt or modify the use of IORT as a component of treatment for their cancer patients in the attendee’s specific institution
in an attempt to improve patient outcomes.
Meet the Experts sessions will occur each morning of the conference to allow individuals to learn from an expert user about the start-
up, advantages and limitations of available technologies. These sessions will allow current IORT users to optimize the use of current
IORT technology in their institution or consider adding a new IORT technology and will allow prospective IORT attendees to
determine which of the IORT technologies are best suited for their patients and institutions.
Teaching lectures, international multidisciplinary panels, topic discussions, oral abstracts and poster sessions will be used to update
attendees with regard to the advances in IORT technology and use. Question and answer sessions will exist to allow attendees to ask
questions relevant to their current scope of knowledge. The knowledge gained by attending ISIORT 2010 will allow attendees to
improve the care of their patients, which can translate into improved patient outcomes.
The target audience will include an international group of physicians (surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists), physicists,
radiation therapists and radiobiologists with interest or involvement in the use of intraoperative irradiation (IORT) as a component of
treatment for the care of their cancer patients.
Meeting goals and learning objeCtives
The overall aims of the ISIORT 2010 conference are:
1) To promote clinical research, education and treatment of cancer patients with intraoperative irradiation (IORT) as a
component of cancer treatment
2) To encourage multi-disciplinary care in which IORT is integrated with external beam irradiation, surgical resection and
systemic therapy to achieve the best results in the care of cancer patients
At the end of the conference, attendees should be able to:
1) Identify and interpret current clinical data with regard to outcomes of IORT as a component of treatment for a variety of
disease sites including breast, colo-rectum, pancreas, gynecologic, head and neck, genitourinary and pediatric cancer and soft
2) Distinguish between the technologies available for the delivery of IORT with regard to start-up, advantages and limits for
application within their particular institution
3) Apply both the technologies and clinical outcomes within the attendees current institution to achieve best patient outcomes
for patients who may be candidates for IORT as a component of treatment
