The ISRS has launched a regionally focused educational webinar series: CNS Hot Topics & Expert Perspectives with the goal of fostering multidisciplinary scientific discussions addressing current treatment of Central Nervous System diseases. The Latin America region is the first area to inaugurate this initiative which will last for 6 months and will be followed by webinar series for Asia and Europe.

Each session focuses on a different indication and features a faculty of recognized specialists in the fields of neurosurgery, radiation oncology, and medical physics who approach the same pathology by different techniques and, sometimes, diverse philosophies. The format comprises lectures from three speakers followed by comments from three panelists and Q & A with meeting attendees
