All About Oligoradiation and CURB

*March 2024*

In this podcast, Dr. Paul Wheatley-Price sits down with Dr. Amir Safavi, final-year Radiation Oncology Resident at the University of Toronto, and Dr. Jillian Tsai, Staff Radiation Oncologist at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. They preface the chat with radiation 101, describe what “oligo-” means in the context of oligoradiation, oligometastises & oligoprogression, the possibility of combining oligoradiation with other cancer treatments, and finally, the CURB research study they’re working on to test whether they could use stereotactic radiotherapy to stop oligoprogression.
