Abstract

The radiation oncologist is an important member of the multidisciplinary team involved in the management of patients with metastatic bone disease. Radiation therapy provides local tumor control of the metastatic deposit and effective pain relief in the majority of patients. If there is a risk of fracture, prophylactic fixation is done before radiation therapy.
