Software, Stereotactic System, Image-Guided Radiosurgery
Definition : Image-guided radiosurgery stereotactic system software designed to operate computer-aided radiosurgery systems and control/monitor their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of radiosurgery systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to make possible the appropriate performance of the system during the procedure and to facilitate the sending/receiving of patient data from and to a workstation and/or imaging and information systems. Image-guided radiosurgery stereotactic system software may be available separate from the radiosurgery system and may be also updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. Dedicated image-guided radiosurgery system software is available for a variety of different applications, either for cobalt systems using gamma radiation (e.g., gamma knife) or linear accelerators.
