Benefits of Implementing Automation and Outcome Measures in Modern Radiosurgery Practices


Nader Pouratian, MD, from the department of neurosurgery at UCLA Medical Center discusses improving radiosurgical outcomes with timing, planning, tracking and analyzing. He begins by outlining the UCLA approach to treating brain metastases. He then describes the challenges of pre- and postoperative radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic radiation therapy (SRT). Dr. Pouratian then gives a detailed examination of the methods and tools for big data collection, including the SRS Registry, and how this collected information is changing patient care.
