Abstract

Dynamic radiosurgery was first developed in Montreal and was subsequently adopted at the Toronto-Bayview Regional Cancer Centre in 1988. At that time radiosurgery was in its infancy in Canada. The opportunity of offering highly conformal radiation treatments for intracranial targets presented numerous technical challenges notably in the area of quality assurance. This review chronicles the development of radiosurgery at the Toronto-Bayview Regional Cancer Centre and summarises the successes and failures of the program over the following two decades.
