The Radiosurgery Society® Announces Initial Results from Ongoing, Multi-Center SRS/SBRT Patient Registry
Date:12/3/2013

(PRWEB) December 03, 2013

The Radiosurgery Society® (the RSS), a non-profit organization of medical professionals dedicated to advancing the science and clinical practice of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and radiosurgery (SRS), announced that the first report from the RSSearch™ Patient Registry, a multi-institutional, observational registry established to standardize data collection from patients with SRS/SBRT, was published in Radiation Oncology 2013, 8:275 (25 November 2013), accessed at http://www.ro-journal.com/content/8/1/275/abstract.

The study titled “The RSSearch Registry: patterns of care and outcomes research on patients treated with stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiotherapy” describes the design, patient demographics, lesion characteristics and SRS/SBRT treatment patterns of the first 11,457 patients enrolled in RSSearch from 39 participating U.S. centers. The report also describes patient-related outcomes of two common treatment sites – brain metastases and liver metastases.

“This report will be the largest dataset of SRS/SBRT-treated patients in a published registry. RSSearch is an ongoing project and we expect the database to continue growing as more centers and patients are treated with SRS/SBRT,” said corresponding author of the study Anand Mahadevan, M.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Radiation Oncology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston.

The RSSearch Patient Registry, formerly known as ReCKord™ Registry, was initially conceptualized and designed in 2005 by a Clinical Advisory Board comprised of radiation oncologists, neurosurgeons, medical oncologists and medical physicists to provide a method to collect standardized data on the use of SRS/SBRT treatment practices and outcomes to help determine the most effective clinical use
