Radiosurgery Now: a patient-centered approach to managing brain metastases
Dr. Dheerendra Prasad
About this talk
The increasing number of diagnoses of brain metastases in asymptomatic patients – as a result of screening MRIs – has created the need for both durable control and prevention of cognitive decline in patients who are expected to have increasing median survivals. Since the mainstay of their therapy is systemic management, “Radiosurgery Now” represents the idea of immediate radiosurgery with the intent of avoiding interruption of systemic management.
This webinar will discuss the impact of delay in radiosurgery on tumour growth and the benefits of repeat radiosurgery for the long-term preservation of cognitive function. The linear and robust rapid workflow of the Leksell Gamma Knife® Icon™ is ideally suited to this concept.
