Review of Whole Brain Radiotherapy for Brain Metastases

Just a quick post to let you know about a review I published with two collaborators today in Surgical Neurology International.  The heavy lifting for this was done by +Emory McTyre, a very bright and motivated medical student who has recently matched into radiation oncology at Wake Forest.  This is a comprehensive review of the use of whole brain radiotherapy in the treatment of brain metastases.  It is written for a clinical audience, but since it is #openaccess anyone can read it and use the information therein.  The corresponding author is a friend and radiation oncologist at Moffitt Cancer Center, Prakash Chinnaiyan.

Here is a link, enjoy and feel free to share.
