Orfit Hybrid Masks in SRS-treatments shown to be equally precise and less stressful than an invasive immobilization frame

An article about the use of Orfit Hybrid masks in Stereotactic RadioSurgery (SRS)-treatments was published by Jessa Hospital in Hasselt, Belgium. In their Medical Newsletter ‘JessaLinea’ is explained how Stereotactic Masks replace a previously used invasive Stereotactic Frame for SRS-treatments. The article was in Dutch, but we have made a translation to English as well.

Research shows that the use of an Orfit Hybrid mask is just as precise as the use of an invasive frame to immobilize the head of a patient. Moreover the use of a thermoplastic mask is painless, easy to reuse in case of recurrence and it increases patient throughput.

Going Frameless: a more comfortable and non-invasive approach for stereotactic radiosurgery
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) treatments in many cases involve a metal cranial frame that is attached to the patient’s skull.
