VCS Seminar: Dr. Dah-Renn Fu

Stereotactic Radiation Therapy in Canine Nasal Tumors

Presented by:  Dr. Dah-Renn Fu, 1st Year Resident, Radiation Oncology

Canine nasal tumors are uncommon, accounting for 1-2% of all neoplasms in dogs. Most canine nasal tumors are local invasive, but are less likely to metastasize. Radiation therapy (RT) is a relatively effective and noninvasive treatment for local control of this tumor. Stereotactic radiation therapy (SRT) is a method used to deliver a curative dose of external beam RT. This precise and conformal treatment directly targets the radiation at the tumor with rapid drop-off, which allows for very high doses of radiation to be administered without increasing toxicity to adjacent normal tissues. This presentation will focus on the application of SRT in canine nasal tumors.  One (1) Continuing Education (CE) credit is offered for this seminar.
