What you should expect to learn

After viewing this program attendees will be able to:

  • delineate the incidence, epidemiology and prognostic implications of brain metastases in advanced NSCLC;
  • identify the potential role of craniotomy and surgical resection in the management of CNS metastases;
  • differentiate the indications for whole brain vs stereotactic XRT in the management of brain metastases and identify the literature that supports these approaches;
  • quantify the risks of brain irradiation, either alone or in combination with systemic treatment.
