Abstract :

On March, 2016, the first Cyber knife M6 started Radiosurgery treatments at Fundacion Arturo Lopez Perez, in Santiago de Chile. This was the third facility in Chile with available radiosurgery in our country, the other centers have: Gamma knife (2) and LINAC based (1). Until April 2019, 309 patients have been treated, both intra and extra cranial. Intracranial cases comprehend the 51.6% of the cases, more than half of these were brain metastases. We present interesting neuro-cases to illustrate our experience.

Conclusion: Extra cranial treatment indications in our experience so far are scarce, information should be reinforced so that referal is expanded. This technique allows effective and safe treatments, widely demonstrated.
