This concise and comprehensive text provides a multidisciplinary information source for brain metastasis.

New therapies and treatments targeted at brain metastasis are rapidly resulting in improved survival and quality of life for patients with this condition. Brain Metastasis: A Multidisciplinary Approach conveys vital information about management strategies, outcomes, and techniques to enable oncologists to provide a full range of appropriate care and counseling to patients with metastatic spread to the brain.

Faithful to its title, this text espouses a truly multidisciplinary approach, integrating information from the fields of oncology, neurosurgery, radiation oncology, and neurology. Experts in each specialty have gathered that information which is most important for all physicians caring for patients with brain metastasis.

Brain Metastasis includes complete discussions for all situations in which radiosurgery might be recommended, including for the treatment of gross brain metastasis; for the prevention of tumor-related injury of brain function; and as an alternative to whole-brain radiotherapy. This is an essential resource for any practitioner who cares for patients with this devastating yet surprisingly common condition.
