abstract

  • The results of this retrospective analysis show that radiosurgery is an effective, minimally invasive outpatient treatment option for small intracranial metastases. Results of this study also indicate that radiosurgery not only provides local control rates equivalent to those from surgical series but is also effective in treating patients with surgically inaccessible lesions, with multiple lesions, or with tumor types that are resistant to conventional treatment.
