Starting a Radiosurgery Program and Benefits of Modern Software Tools


Filippo Alongi, MD, Head of Radiation Oncology at Ospedale Sacro Cuore-Don Calabria Cancer Care Center in Negrar-Verona, Italy, discusses beginning a radiosurgical program and the benefits of modern software tools. He begins by mentioning that the role of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) are emerging, especially in the area of spine metastases. He then discusses the use of Brainlab Elements Spine SRS software tools, including automatic segmentation, deformable registration of PET and/or MRI and simulation CT, as well as planning with sharp dose gradients. He then uses case examples to outline their experiences with the software at his facility.
