Demystifying Molecular-Based Tests in Head and Neck Cancers

Siddharth Sheth, DO, MPH, will provide a brief overview of clinical factors relevant to head and neck cancers and basic management. Themain focus will be the current use of technologies that aid with the diagnosis, treatment selection, and monitoring of patientswith head and neck cancers. This includes next generation sequencing assays for DNA sequencing, RNA sequencing, andcirculating tumor DNA. The goal of the presentation is for providers to be comfortable with ordering and basic interpretation ofthese tests.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Describe the role of next generation sequencing to select therapies for patients with head and neck cancers
  • Explain the concept of circulating tumor DNA and its current clinical applications
  • Discuss how these technologies are being implemented in clinical trials
