Shearwood McClelland, Simon A. Brown, Marigdalia K. Ramirez-Fort, Jerry J. Jaboin, Richard C. Zellars

Recent discussion has brought the issue of the value of surgical exposure in radiation oncology to the forefront, an aspect of radiation oncology which to date has failed to be adequately addressed.
