The stereotactic radiosurgery system used at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology is patterned after that developed at the Joint Center for Radiation Therapy (Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston, MA) and uses the Brown-Roberts-Wells computed tomography (CT) stereotactic system. The patient's head is attached to a stand that rotates with the treatment couch. The irradiation is conducted using a set of converging arcs of irradiation. Because of mechanical limitations, no accelerator or… CONTINUE READING
