Clinical Practice Guidelines

One of the main objectives of the ISRS is to elucidate best practices and provide guidance for the safe and effective practice of radiosurgery.During the past several years, a number of important guidelines have been published under the direction of and with input from global experts.  Additional guidelines are in development.    

This Guideline development process reflects a mentorship strategy intended to develop the next generation of leaders in radiosurgery as each project lead is matched with a senior academician.  The ISRS is grateful for the considerable time and effort of each of the contributors.

Most of the following guidelines may be accessed free of charge via open access by clicking on the publication titles.
