Radiosurgery Clinical Trials
We will discuss your treatment in one of our weekly radiosurgery conferences, where specialists from Miami Neuroscience Institute and Miami Cancer Institute weigh in on your case.
If you have been diagnosed with a brain tumor, we will also discuss your treatment plan at our weekly tumor boards, where specialists get together to review cases.
Not only does this save the patient time that would be spent meeting with multiple experts across the Institute, it also allows for a comprehensive evaluation that can lead to more effective treatment.
The number of radiosurgery sessions you need will depend on your diagnosis, the location in the brain that needs to be treated and the type of treatment you receive. If you have been diagnosed with a brain tumor, the number of sessions will also depend on the size of the tumor. Most patients undergo between one and five sessions.
One of the benefits of radiosurgery is that it delivers precise radiation treatment, so the radiation dose to other parts of the brain is extremely low. We are also able to carefully control the dose, so we are only using as much radiation as is necessary.
This precision also allows us to treat conditions in parts of the brain that control important functions, such as speech or movement.
