Radiation Therapy of Brain Tumors

  • R. Sauer

Abstract

Radiation therapy (RT) is the most important treatment modality following surgery in brain tumors. Most of them respond to radiation administered either in the form of an external beam, or as interstitial implants. Usually, postoperative RT considerably prolongs the recurrence-free survival of the patients, and ameliorates their symptoms when tumors reoccur. RT as the sole therapeutic measure is indicated in only a few exceptional cases. Most frequently, it is an unsatisfactory therapeutic alternative, and remains a stopgap. At the very least, the surgeon must provide a biopsy specimen so that the diagnosis of a tumor, including grading, can be reliably established. This applies also, and in particular, to the diagnosis of recurrence after prior irradiation, in order not to confuse a recurrent tumor with radiation-associated late effects.
