Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Collect and analyze outcome data on tumor control. [ Time Frame: When each patient has been followed for a minimum of 12 month and then again after 24 months to a maximum of 10 years. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Collect and analyze data on normal tissue morbidity. [ Time Frame: When each patient has been followed for a minimum of 12 months and then again after 24 months to a maximum of 10 years. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Specifically analyzing pituitary, visual and hearing function.
