Single-fraction stereotactic radiosurgery for intracranial targets.

Abstract

Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is a technique for treating intracranial lesions with a high dose of ionizing radiation, usually in a single session, using a stereotactic apparatus for accurate localization and patient immobilization. This article describes several modalities of SRS and some of its applications, particularly for intracranial lesions.
