Radiosurgery uses ionizing radiation (most commonly x-rays) to treat benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous) tumors in the brain. Modern radiosurgery is referred to as stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), because a stereotactic device is used to hold the head in a carefully planned position for each treatment. This technology allows high doses of radiation to be delivered to the tumor with minimal exposure to surrounding healthy tissue.
