The use of radiotherapy in the control of carcinoid is related to the non-secretory tumors (5-HIAA). Local regional control with sustained survivorship may be achieved, although maximal dose for site of disease as well as normal tissue tolerance must be taken into account. The role of radiotherapy in secretory carcinoid should be restricted to situations where other modalities such as chemotherapy and 1–131 MIBG cannot palliate the tumor site. In the national survey 85% of radiation oncologists would treat carcinoid.
