A significant number of cancer patients will develop intracranial metastases. In general, treatment of these lesions uses a combination of surgery and radiation. However, over the past several decades the specifics of this treatment paradigm have evolved significantly. This article describes the current standard of care with respect to intracranial metastases, highlighting the latest therapeutic developments.
