Although benign histologically, craniopharyngiomas may display clinically malignant behavior with a strong propensity for recurrence. Contemporary therapeutic approaches for craniopharyngiomas include stereotactic irradiation in the form of Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) or Fractionated Stereotactic Radiation Therapy (FSRT) as part of multimodality treatment particularly when complete surgical removal is not feasible. In this study, we evaluate the use of Linear Accelerator (LINAC)-based SRS… 
Hypofractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (HFSRT) for who grade I anterior clinoid meningiomas (ACM)
TLDR
LINAC-based HFSRT offers high rates of LC and PFS for patients with ACMs, and only two patients experienced clinical deterioration during the follow-up period.
Evaluation of Radiosurgery Target Volume Determination for Meningiomas Based on Computed Tomography (CT) And Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
TLDR
Improved target volume definition is a pertinent goal of optimal radiosurgical treatment planning for patients treated with radiosurgery for meningiomas and the utility of MRI inMeningioma radiosur surgery treatment planning is supported.
Evaluation of Target Definition for Stereotactic Reirradiation of Recurrent Glioblastoma
TLDR
Incorporation of MRI may improve target definition for recurrent glioblastoma radiosurgery despite the need for further supporting evidence.
Utility of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Imaging) in Target Volume Definition for Radiosurgery of Acoustic Neuromas
Aim: Acoustic neuromas, also known as vestibular schwannomas are benign and slow-growing tumors arising from neural crest-derived Schwann cells. Treatment of acoustic neuromas targets to achieve
Assessment of Target Volume Definition for Radiosurgery of Atypical Meningiomas with Multimodality Imaging
TLDR
Ground truth target volume defined by the board-certified radiation oncologists after detailed evaluation, collaboration, colleague peer review and consensus has been found to be identical to target determination by use of CT-MR fusion based imaging.
Treatment Volume Determination for Irradiation Ofrecurrent Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma with Multimodality Imaging: An Original Article
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma is a frequent head and neck neoplasm which is endemic in Southern China [1-3]. Patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma may benefit from multidisciplinary management including
Determination of Radiosurgery Treatment Volume for Intracranial Germ Cell Tumors (GCTS)
TLDR
Intacranial GCT treatment volume determination by incorporation of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) was comparatively assessed and radiosurgery target volume was based solely on CT images or fusion of CT with MRI.
Radiosurgery for recurrent glioblastoma: a review article
TLDR
The use of radiosurgery for management of recurrent GB is reviewed in light of the literature and several therapeutic strategies are employed in the recurrent setting with no established standard of care.
Evaluatıon of Target Volume Determınatıon for Irradıatıon of Pılocytıc Astrocytomas: An Orıgınal Artıcle
Pilocytic astrocytomas are the most frequent gliomas in children. Radiation therapy (RT) may have a role in management of pilocytic astrocytomas either as an adjunctive, salvage or primary treatment
Multimodality Imaging Based Treatment Volume Definition for Reirradiation of Recurrent Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC)
TLDR
Decision making for reirradiation of patients with recurrent SCLC has been performed after comprehensive assessment considering the lesion size, localization and association with critical structures, previously administered treatments at initial diagnosis, and time interval from initial RT.

Evaluation of linear accelerator-based stereotactic radiosurgery in the management of meningiomas: a single center experience.
TLDR
LINAC-based SRS offers a safe and effective treatment alternative to surgery in intracranial meningiomas with high local control rates and low morbidity.
Stereotactic radiosurgery of residual or recurrent craniopharyngioma, after surgery, with or without radiation therapy.
TLDR
Stereotactic radiosurgery is a reasonable option in select patients with small recurrent or residual craniopharyngioma and objectively improved in 6 patients, and one patient with prior visual defect deteriorated further and lost vision 9 months after radiosur surgery.
Radiation therapy and CyberKnife radiosurgery in the management of craniopharyngiomas.
TLDR
The authors' early experience with the application of CyberKnife SRS to residual or recurrent craniopharyngiomas has been positive; control or shrinkage of the tumor was achieved in 91% of patients, with no visual or neuroendocrine complications.
Linear accelerator-based stereotactic radiosurgery in recurrent glioblastoma: a single center experience.
TLDR
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) offers a viable noninvasive therapeutic option in palliative treatment of recurrent GB as a sophisticated modality with improved setup accuracy allowing the administration of high-dose, precise radiotherapy.
Gamma knife radiosurgery for craniopharyngiomas.
TLDR
It is suggested that GKS accompanied by adjuvant stereotactic procedures should be used as an alternative in treating recurrent or residual craniopharyngiomas if further microsurgical excision cannot promise a cure.

The role of fractionated radiotherapy and radiosurgery in the management of patients with craniopharyngioma
TLDR
FSRT is a suitable treatment technique for all sizes of craniopharyngiomas, and efficacy is comparable to conventional RT, and longer follow-up is necessary to confirm the excellent tumor control and the potential reduction of long-term radiation toxicity.

TLDR
Stereotactic GKS is safe and effective, in the long term, as an adjuvant or boost therapy for residual or recurrent craniopharyngiomas after surgical removal and has minimal side effects.
