A Randomized Trial of Robotic Compared to Fixed Gantry Radiosurgery for Brain Metastases
Radiosurgery is precisely delivered high dose radiation. It can be performed using multiple
cobalt sources, a modified traditional gantry-based linear accelerator or a robotic linear
accelerator. The treatment of brain metastases represents the most common indication for
radiosurgery while new indications for this technology are continually being discovered.
With the increasing importance of radiosurgery and the resource implications for
radiation therapy programs the investigators have proposed the first direct technological
comparison of robotic to linear accelerator radiosurgery for brain metastases.
