Role of Radiosurgery for Treatment of Brain Metastases in the Era of Targeted and Immunotherapies


Veronica Chiang, MD, from the Department of Neurosurgery at Yale University in New Haven, US, discusses the role of radiosurgery (SRS) for the treatment of brain metastases in the era of targeted and immunotherapies. She begins by discussing how targeted and immunotherapies have changed the way we treat cancer in recent years and also their impact on the incidence of brain metastases as patients live longer. Dr. Chiang then uses case examples to show the effect of immunotherapy on brain metastases and what her team learned through that trial, including interactions when using SRS together with immunotherapy. She then moves on to discuss targeted therapies and where radiosurgery falls into this new era of treatments.
