  • The ability to perform radiosurgery (1-5 fractions) on targets throughout the body, not just the brain
  • Precise targeting (within 1 mm) of selected lesions in the brain and body
  • A unique ability to provide real time monitoring of the treated target throughout treatment using an advanced image-guidance system
  • Continually checks and compensates for any movement made during treatments, ensuring accuracy
