The Journal of Neurosurgery (JNS) Publishes the First Article with Data from NPA’s Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) Registry
The American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), with support from Brainlab, has developed a national prospective Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) registry. SRS is a minimally invasive approach using imaging guidance and stereotactic principles to deliver radiation to targeted cells within the body. The SRS registry captures treatment information for thousands of patients affected by brain metastases, benign brain tumors and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs).
Launched in 2015, the SRS registry is comprised of over 20 national, high-volume sites that collect patient-reported outcomes at routine intervals. The registry is aimed at defining national patterns of care in radiosurgery with an aim to improve health care outcomes, supporting informed decision making and potentially lower the cost of care. The NPA oversees registry management and Brainlab provides the registry’s technology platform with a focus on increased efficiency of data collection, organization and enhanced analytics. The registry’s steering committee is helmed by NPA Board member, Jason Sheehan, MD, PhD, FAANS, and the registry has enrolled over 3,000 patients to-date.
