Brain injury by therapeutic irradiation has traditionally been classified according to its time of onset into acute, early delayed, and late forms. The latter is not reversible. The neurocognitive sequelae of cranial irradiation can be mediated through vascular injury. Because the pathologic changes are most profound in the white matter, we compared a… CONTINUE READING
