Radiosurgery is a non-invasive treatment technique applying focused radiation beams. It requires high geometric accuracy as misalignment can cause damage to the surrounding healthy tissues and loss of the therapeutic effect. One promising technique to insure submillimeter alignment accuracy of the radiation beam is to optically monitor the position of the beam axis relative to a frame firmly attached to the patient's skull using an optical alignment system. The optical alignment method requires… CONTINUE READING
