Frameless Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Brain Metastases

Official Title

Frameless Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Brain Metastases


The investigators plan to study high dose, single treatment radiation, using a plastic mask instead of a head frame that pins into a patient's skull. The investigators need to (1) quantify set-up accuracy and patient motion during radiation treatment and (2) ensure that without the head frame the tumour control rate and risk of complications are similar to our previous experience using the head frame.

Trial Description

Primary Outcome:

  • Quantification of patient movement occurring during treatment.
Secondary Outcome:
  • Local tumour control
  • risk of complication (radionecrosis)
