A Study to Compare Single Fraction Stereotactic Radiosurgery Compared with Fractionated Stereotactic Radiosurgery in Treating Patients With Resected Metastatic Brain Disease
Jacksonville, FL; Rochester, MN; Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ
The purpose of this study is to compare how well single fraction stereotactic radiosurgery works versus fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery in treating patients with cancer that has spread to the brain from other parts of the body and has been removed by surgery. Single fraction stereotactic radiosurgery is a specialized radiation therapy that delivers a single, high dose of radiation directly to the tumor and may cause less damage to normal tissue. Fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery delivers multiple, smaller doses of radiation therapy over time.
