Objective: Radiosurgery is commonly accepted for the treatment of small (<3cm) singular cerebral metastases. Scarce reports suggested interstitial brachytherapy (IBT) by stereotactically guided implantation of 125iodine seeds for treatment of cerebral metastases especially when histology was requested,[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
