Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (FSRT) have become important treatment modalities for brain tumors. A technique that delivers a high dose of radiation, with effective use in patients with life-limiting diseases. Due to its specificity, the precision and direct visualization of the target during the delivery of the treatment is very important. The aim of this research article is to provide the safety and long-term efficacy of SRS and SRT. This research article, also, provides accuracy of the SRS treatment performed on linear accelerator and use of the trUpoint ARCH SRS system for patient imobilization.
