Care Patterns for Stereotactic Radiosurgery in Small Cell Lung Cancer Brain Metastases

Introduction: The historical standard of care for brain metastases (BMs) from small cell lung cancer (SCLC) has been whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT). However, there is growing interest in upfront stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for select SCLC patients.Materials and Methods: We invited United State-based Radiation Oncologists (ROs) via email to answer an anonymous survey using a branching logic system addressing their use of SRS and WBRT for SCLC BMs. Wilcoxon rank-sum test and Fisher’s exact test were used to compare differences in continuous and categorical variables, respectively.
