Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells and may be an
effective treatment for patients with glioma. Stereotactic radiation therapy may be able to
deliver x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue. It is not yet
known if standard radiation therapy is more effective when followed by stereotactic radiation
therapy.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of standard radiation
therapy with or without stereotactic radiation therapy in treating patients who have glioma.
