Fractionated Stereotactic Radiotherapy
Fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy employs highly precise patient positioning and radiation delivery methods to aim beams of radiation, from many angles, to cover a tumors that often are in sensitive areas of the body. The treatment is split into a number of smaller doses (fractions) of radiation.
Tumors Treated with Fractionated Stereotactic Radiotherapy
- Brain tumors, both benign and malignant
- Metastatic brain lesions
- Non-tumor lesions in the brain such as Arterio-Venous Malformations (AVM)
- Vestibular schwannomas or acoustic neuromas
- Certain types of head and neck cancers, such as cancer of the tonsil, larynx, tongue, sinus, base of skull and mouth
