Abstract

A system for high-precision radiosurgical treatment of metastatic tumors has been developed, tested, and applied clinically. Optical tracking of the ultrasound probe provides real-time tracking of the patient anatomy and allows computation of the target displacement before treatment delivery. The patient treatments reported here suggest the feasibility and safety of the technique.
