Work in progress: 252Cf neutron brachytherapy for hemispheric malignant glioma.


It has been shown that 252Cf neutron brachytherapy of hemispheric malignant glioma can be readily carried out and may be combined with external, whole brain photon beam therapy of 6,000 rad (60 Gy) administered over a five-week to seven-week period. The ten patients who were studied tolerated both procedures well. There was improvement in performance status, and a decrease in tumor size was observed upon computed tomographic scanning.
