Poster # 2451 Analysis of True Delivered Dose to the Prostate Fossa Utilizing Daily Cone Beam CT in Postprostatectomy Patients Who Failed Salvage Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy

Presenter: Sinisa Stanic, MD

About the Presenter:
Sinisa Stanic, MD, is a Board Eligible Radiation Oncologist, a graduate of the Univ. of California Davis Radiation Oncology Residency Program.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------At the Univ. of Texas Southwestern, he was trained in Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) with Dr. Robert Timmerman, an international authority on SBRT. As a result, in September 2010, he introduced the Univ. of Texas Southwestern Planning Technique for Lung SBRT at the Univ. of California Davis. This resulted in shorter treatment-planning time, shorter treatment delivery, and fewer collision issues. At Cleveland Clinic, he had a full Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion Training with Drs. Gene Barnett, Lilly Angelov, and John Suh. Dr. Stanic fully meets Nuclear Regulatory Commission training requirements for the qualified users of Gamma Knife Radiosurgery Unit. His Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI) Training took place at Arizona Breast Cancer Specialists with Dr. Robert Kuske, one of the pioneers in APBI.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------During his residency at the Univ. of California Davis, he received training in all radiation therapy modalities including IGRT, IMRT, IMRT TomoTherapy, and HDR Gynecologic Brachytherapy. He was trained in prostate cancer radiotherapy with Dr. Richard Valicenti. He served as a member of several Departmental task groups, including a task group for IV Contrast Media Injection Policy with injection-scanning protocols for 3D-CT and 4D-CT simulations, and task group for Radiotherapy Policy in patients with Pacemakers and ICDs. He is the author or co-author of several articles published in peer-reviewed journals and book chapters. With Dr. Allen Chen, residency program director and head & neck cancer specialist, he participated in mentoring several medical students.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Dr. Stanic is a recipient of several travel grants, including American College of Radiology Travel Grant for RTOG Radiation Oncology Research Fellowship focusing on Lung Cancer, Univ. of Colorado Department of Radiation Oncology Travel Grant for SBRT Training, and American Brachytherapy Society Travel Grant for HDR Breast Brachytherapy Training. During his RTOG Fellowship in Philadelphia, Dr. Stanic proposed a secondary analysis of RTOG 0236 clinical trial in which he analyzed pulmonary function changes following SBRT and impact of baseline pulmonary function on overall survival in patients with early stage non-small cell lung cancer. The results of this analysis have been accepted for an oral presentation (Stanic S. et al.) at ASTRO’s 2012 Annual Meeting in Boston, MA, October 28 – 31, 2012.
