Description

  • To realize that HBOT is an effective and approved treatment for radiation injury to bone and soft tissue through its ability to induce neo-angiogenesis in tissues rendered ischemic (not necrotic) by radiation therapy.
  • To realize that HBOT is not only effective in osteoradionecrosis of the jaw and radiation injury to pelvic organs, but also is effective in radiation vascular injury to brain.
  • To realize that the benefit of HBOT on brain tumor survivors is through its amelioration of small vessel depletion which can be demonstrated best by color perfusion MRI imaging.
  • Realize that rather than just slowing or arresting progressive decline, HBOT actually improves neurological function in most treated patients.
