The treatment of pituitary tumors has progressed into a multidisciplinary approach that involves neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, and endocrinologists. This has allowed improved outcomes in treatment of pituitary tumors due to a combination of surgical, medical, and radiation therapies. In this study, the authors review the role of radiation therapy in the treatment of pituitary adenomas.
