Frameless IGRS Requirements: 6D Positioning and Monitoring


Linda Carruthers, Msc, from the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh discusses how her institution established a frameless pathway for their stereotactic service, their use of ExacTrac Patient Positioning and Monitoring and how they established their confidence with the system. She begins by outlining the use of frameless image guided radiosurgery (IGRS) at Western General. She then goes into detail about the study they completed regarding frameless IGRS requirements in terms of 6D positioning and monitoring.
