Learning Objectives

With this webinar we aim to present:

  • Size of Brain lesions suitable for treatment.

  • The number of lesions should never be the sole factor in determining the course of treatment, exploration of studies that support this.
  • Total volume of metastases in CC.
  • Linac SRT for the larger volume (mostly post-op residual/recurrence) cases – the outcomes of this to the role of Linac SRT for larger target volumes.
  • Referral to treatment Metastases Pathways – significant findings which effect the patients pathways.
