Fractionalized Stereotactic RadiosurgeryStereotactic radiosurgery is the very precise delivery of radiation to a brain tumor with sparing of the surrounding normal brain. To achieve this precision, special procedures for localization of the brain tumor are necessary. These tools include the stereotactic frame, the CT or MRI scanner, a computerized system for calculating the radiation dose to the brain tumor, and a precise system for delivering the radiation to the brain tumor. Stereotactic radiosurgery offers an important alternative to more invasive treatments for many brain tumors. The role of radiosurgery vs. surgery is determined by many factors. These include the size of the brain tumor, location, how rapidly the symptoms arose, how ill the patient may be (If the patient is very ill, surgery may offer more rapid resolution of the tumor), and the histology (type) of the brain tumor.
