The Non-Inferiority of Radiosurgery Alone as Initial Therapy for Patients with More than Five Brain Metastases


Stephanie E. Combs, MD, professor and chair in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University Hospital Klinikum Rechts der Isar in Munich, Germany, discusses the non-inferiority of radiosurgery alone as an initial therapy for patients with more than five brain metastases. She begins by explaining the real evidence for radiosurgery in patients with more than three brain metastases. She then goes into detail using case examples and outcomes from her institution to outline the various arguments and data that support radiosurgery alone for multiple brain metastases.
