Stereotactic radiosurgery is another way to treat brain tumors.

An MRI or CT scan is used to pinpoint the exact location of the tumor, and the treatment is given in one session.

High-energy rays are aimed at the tumor from many angles.

A high dose of radiation reaches the tumor without damaging other brain tissue.

This may be referred to as the gamma knife.
