The International Radiosurgery Research Foundation consists of academic and clinical centers of excellence where brain Stereotactic Radiosurgery is performed using high quality dedicated devices. All participating centers have a track record of outcomes research.
A key goal of the IRRF is to facilitate retrospective and prospective clinical trials and outcomes analysis that evaluate the role of stereotactic radiosurgery for a wide spectrum of clinical indications. The IRRF is also dedicated to education of clinicians, research and the public.
Because individual centers may evaluate only a small number of patients with rare conditions, pooling of information is critical to evaluate and to improve outcomes. Each center has a professional team consisting of one or more neurological surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical physicists. Participation is invited and site membership is evaluated by the Board of Directors.
The IRRF is a non-profit scientific, educational, and research entity incorporated in the state of Pennyslvania
