#RadOnc legend Dr. Ralph Weichselbaum joins The Accelerators (Drs. Anna Laucis, Simul Parikh, and Matt Spraker) for one of our favorite episodes ever.
We kick off by discussing how to #MedTwitter, the state of technology and proton therapy, and radiation resource allocation. Then we discuss Ralph and Sam Hellman's 1995 paper, Oligometastases, the history of the concept, and where we are headed. This leads to a scientific discussion on the abscopal effect.
We close the show with an epic new segment: the lightning round! We grill Ralph on pizza, the MD/PhD degree, the best cities for conferences, and why #RadOnc would benefit from broadening our scope of work to include delivery of select systemic therapies.
Here are some other things that came up on the show:
