Brain Tumors 101: Radiation Therapy for the Brain Tumor Patient presents our 10th video in our Brain Tumors 101 Series, “Radiation Therapy for the Brain Tumor Patient”. In this video, Dr. Charles Cobbs, Neurosurgeon and the Gregory Foltz Endowed Director of The Ben and Catherine Ivy Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment at Swedish Neuroscience Institute, Seattle, WA, describes what radiation therapy is and when and why it is used to treat brain tumor patients.

Dr. Cobbs gives a very thorough break down of how radiation works and brings to light many common questions that brain tumor patients often have when discussing this treatment with their doctor.

The tumor is 6 cm x5 cm x4 cm and deemed inoperable in the right temporal lobe … I will complete this treatment may 26 2015. How do I apply for your clinical trials program?
