Abstract

Radiation therapy plays a critical role in the management of tumors of the brain. A variety of radiotherapy techniques have been used to treat these tumors. This review describes both classic and more recent and advanced techniques available to manage these tumors. Included is a discussion of standard two- and three-dimensional radiation, as well as intensity-modulated radiotherapy, image-guided radiation therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, and heavy particles.
