Aim: The present study aimed to determine the prognostic survival value of pretreatment health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and changes in HRQOL following whole-brain radiation treatment in patients with brain metastases. Methods: Patients who were treated with whole-brain radiation treatment and completed HRQOL questionnaires were included. Univariate and multivariate Cox proportional hazard models of overall survival (OS) were conducted for overall HRQOL and domain scores.
