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  
  • Meningiomas
