Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia (HUSM) is credited as one of the very first centres to offer radiosurgical services in the country. Up until February 2011, a total of 167 patients have received stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic radiotherapy treatment for a wide spectrum of neurosurgical conditions. Radiosurgery services in USM commenced in 2001 with the purchase of a medical linear accelerator (Siemens, Primus) complimented by treatment cones, head rings, localiser system and a workstation for planning from Radionics. The Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) service in USM proved to be a vital one with patients being referred to us from all corners of the country including from East Malaysia (1,2).
