Map and Directions


The Radiosurgery Society® invites you to work together with your fellow colleagues, your contemporaries, and your mentors from system install through patient follow up. Work together and share challenging cases, treatment techniques and patient safety thus furthering the evolution of SRS/SBRT system capabilities and treatment options. Work together – share, teach and learn. This meeting is not just about “what” but the “how”!

Objectives: Ultimately to improve patient care and outcomes, focusing on bridging the gap and working together. In this meeting we will break down barriers between industry, technology, hospitals, clinicians, scientists and research. Learn “how” to treat more safely and effectively, not just “what” others are doing.

Three Full Days: The best of the best in Oral and Poster Presentations from experienced users of multi-platform SRS/SBRT systems; the highly popular “Showdown” featuring presentation/debate/rebuttals from world thought leaders; Performance and Quality Improvement cases; dedicated Physics sessions and presentations; Administration Breakout to discuss Billing, Coding & Reimbursement and a new training course focused on the Principles of Radiobiology and Radiosurgery with emphasis on Lung.
