Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is a way to accurately treat brain tumors. SRS involves the use of a special head frame to keep the head from moving during treatment. The head frame makes very accurate treatment possible. The frame must be attached to the skull with special pins. It feels very tight and can hurt. A special immobilization device can be used to keep the head from moving. This device does not need any pins and does not hurt. We would like to see if the new way of holding the head still can be used for SRS. This is the purpose of the study. New X-Ray machines can be used to find if the head has moved in the mask. We hope that we can use these new tools to treat brain tumors just as accurately without using a head frame. It will make treatment more comfortable for the patient. This is why we are asking patients to join the study.
