Brain Radiation Therapy

Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) is a type of Radiation Therapy used to treat functional abnormalities and small tumors of the brain. SRS can deliver precisely-targeted radiation in fewer high-dose treatments than traditional therapy.

AlignRT® monitoring of the head enables the high accuracy required for SRS. This more patient friendly approach to SRS is proven to provide the same accuracy as the more invasive techniques and has been shown to deliver comparable outcomes to more invasive approaches.1-17
