Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Intracranial Metastases

Radiation-oncologist Michelle Alonso-Basanta, MD, PhD, examines stereotactic radiosurgery (SRE) for the treatment of metastatic brain tumors. Describing the Penn SRE program as a collaboration between the Departments of Radiation Oncology and Neurosurgery, Dr. Alonso-Basanta defines the circumstances for the application of SRE in metastatic disease (a combination of histology, location and tumor size) and reviews case studies.
