Treatment for complex tumors at the base of the skull
Duke offers precise radiation therapy to target skull base tumors. Our state-of-the-art facilities and expert radiation oncologists have the skills and tools needed to accurately pinpoint the tumor and remove it.
Tumors commonly treated with radiation therapy include:
Our team has access to a number of imaging modalities, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans, that allow them to view the precise location of the skull base tumor or lesion and focus the x-rays directly on the target.
This image-guided radiation therapy reduces the amount of healthy brain tissue that is exposed to radiation.
Often, radiation therapy is used following skull base surgery to ensure that the entire tumor is completely removed.
