Abstract: In surgically amenable tumours, day case SRS could also be used in approximately one-third of cases, thereby avoiding craniotomy and reducing length of stay. These data may be useful in planning service provision, and for drawing up business plans for a new SRS services. Nationally agreed guidelines for SRS for brain metastases have been developed and a full health economic analysis warrants further investigation to determine the cost effectiveness of SRS compared to craniotomy.
