      P090 - Prevalence of Brain Metastases in Limited Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer Immediately Before Prophylactic Cranial Irradiation (ID 22)

      • Abstract

      Prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) reduces the incidence of brain metastasis (BM) and improves overall survival (OS) in limited-stage Small Cell Lung Cancer (LS-SCLC) patients with complete or partial remission after receiving chemoradiotherapy. However, cranial magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) before scheduled PCI is not mandatory, and its necessity remains controversial. Therefore, we conducted this study to evaluate LS-SCLC patients
