Part 2: Radiation Therapy for the Brain Tumor Patient

BrainCancer.org presents our 11th video in our Brain Tumors 101 Series, “Radiation Therapy for the Brain Tumor Patient Part 2”. 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 linear beam radiation therapy and describes how it is used in the treatment of brain tumors.

Dr. Cobbs gives a very thorough break down of how radiation works while discussing several types of radiation therapy: linear beam radiation, whole brain radiation for metastatic brain tumors, and CyberKnife and Gamma Knife radiation.
