New study evaluates the safety and efficacy of preoperative stereotactic radiosurgery.
A study conducted in 22 adult patients with low-grade glioma found that concurrent temozolomide-based chemoradiation therapy does not adversely influence neurocognitive function during a 2-year treatment follow up.
Scientists and clinicians from Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University received a $1.15 million grant from the NCI to develop AI tools that assist in the differentiation of tumor recurrence versus scar tissue on postoperative MRI scans in patients with certain colorectal and brain cancers.
Stereotactic radiosurgery, used most often for adult brain tumors, also has promising benefits for pediatric tumors. Dr. Erin Murphy shares results of her study in pilocytic astrocytoma.
