To the Editor: Dr Aoyama and colleagues1 studied stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) with and without whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT) for treatment of brain metastases. We think that the appropriate conclusions from this study are different from those drawn by the authors and by Dr Raizer2 in the accompanying Editorial.
