Although the details of radiosurgical treatment techniques differ somewhat from system to system, the basic paradigm is quite similar everywhere. Below is a detailed description of a typical radiosurgical treatment at the University of Florida:
Almost all radiosurgical procedures in adults are performed on an outpatient basis. The patient reports to the neurosurgical clinic the day before treatment for a detailed history and physical, as well as an in-depth review of the treatment options. A team that can provide surgical or endovascular options should make the selection of radiosurgery as an appropriate treatment option as well. The fundamental elements of any successful radiosurgical treatment include the following: head ring application, stereotactic image acquisition, treatment planning, dose selection, radiation delivery, and follow-up. All these elements are critical, and poor performance of any step will result in suboptimal results.
