A radiation therapy technique for brain tumors that uses a rigid head frame that is attached to the skull. The frame is used to help aim high-dose radiation beams directly at the tumors and not at normal brain tissue. This procedure does not involve surgery. Also called stereotactic external-beam radiation, stereotactic radiation therapy, and stereotactic radiosurgery.
