1993) and Menke et al. (1994). They employed video stereophotogrammetry as a means of evaluating the repositioning accuracy of a specially designed head holder for fractionated radiotherapy. Shortly thereafter, Bova et al. (1997) adopted the methodology for cranial radiosurgery. 05 mm deflections in a radiosurgery head holder. In 1999, the group at the University of Chicago developed a video-based system for patient positioning (Johnson et al. 1999). The system used two CCD cameras to display real-time subtraction images for analysis of misalignment of head and neck patients.

14 The spinal radiosurgery approach described by Medin et al combined frame-based localization with kV projection image guidance using a mobile radiography unit be performed despite the fact that (a) the patient had moved from the time of the initial CT and (b) the target could not be directly visualized in the treatment room. 17 mm. The methodology was subsequently evaluated in a swine model. Radionics briefly considered commercializing the methodology. Two groups have combined in-room CT imaging with linac delivery for stereotactic irradiation of intra- and extra-cranial targets.

9 Drawing from the 1993 patent awarded to John Adler, Russell Schonberg and Peter Schonberg, with an early version of the CyberKnife continue to be used to this day in the treatment of many patients every year. Meeks et al. (2000) described a double-focused miniature MLC developed in conjunction with Wellhofer Dosimetrie (Schwarzenbruck, Germany). 3 Dedicated Linac Radiosurgery Systems Through the 1990s, the use of linacs in radiosurgery remained controversial, based largely on the assertion by some practitioners that linac-based systems, with multiple moving parts, could not match the accuracy of gamma units.
