Innovative Therapies and Radiosurgery in Brain Metastasis
Despite advances in multimodality management of brain metastases, local progression following stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) can occur. Often, surgical resection is favored, as it frequently provides immediate symptom relief as well as pathological characterization of any residual tumor. During this course, Dr. Manmeet S. Ahluwalia will discuss and analyze the innovative therapies and radiosurgery available when treating patients with brain metastasis.
