Phase III Randomized Trial of the Role of Whole Brain Radiation Therapy in Addition to Radiosurgery in the Management of Patients with One to Three Cerebral Metastases
The purpose of this research study is to compare overall survival and to compare the effects (good and bad) of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) to stereotactic radiosurgery plus whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT) on brain metastases. Participants in this study have cancer somewhere else in the body that has metastasized (spread) to the brain. This research study is being done to find out if adding WBRT to stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) will offer any additional benefit to receiving stereotactic radiosurgery alone in treating these possible microscopic tumor deposits in the brain since it is not known whether more treatment will be better or worse.
