Software, Stereotactic System, Frame-Guided, Radiosurgery
Definition : Frame-guided 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 frame-guided radiosurgical 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 surgical procedure and to facilitate the sending/receiving of patient data from and to a workstation and/or imaging and information systems. Radiosurgical frame-guided surgical stereotactic system software is frequently available separate from the surgical system and may be also updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the surgical system. Dedicated software for cobalt systems using gamma radiation (e.g., gamma knife) and linear accelerators is also available.
