Optimizing therapy for patients with brain metastases SEMINARS IN ONCOLOGY Kuo, T., Recht, L. 2006; 33 (3): 299-306


Brain metastases from systemic cancers are the most common malignant brain tumors encountered. Although prognosis remains poor, it is possible to stratify patients according to risk.
