Neuro-Oncology 2019: Advanced Treatment Paradigms of Meningioma - July 27, 2019

Meningioma is the most common type of tumor that forms in the head, and though 85% of diagnosed meningioms are categorized as benign, these tumors still cause side effects and issues for the patient. In this course, experts in meningioma diagnosis and treatment will provide updates in the latest treatment options for meningioma and cover risk factors and indicators for treatment. Neurosurgeons, neurologists, radiologists, oncologists, radiation oncologists, primary care providers, nurses, and patients are encouraged to attend.
