- Have a life expectancy of greater than 2 years

Age Group
Participating Institutions

What is Involved?

If you choose to join this study, you will:

- Undergo radiation therapy using IG-IMRT before surgery for the removal of your tumor.

- Receive a standard dose of radiation that will be given to the majority of the tumor and at the same time, a higher dose of radiation will be given to certain areas of the tumor identified as higher risks.

- Schedule your surgery following radiation therapy with your surgeon.
