To have radiosurgery, your head needs to be kept as still as possible during the treatment. Doctors call this immobilisation.
Your treatment team attach a frame to your skull using 4 pins. Before they attach the frame, you have 4 injections of local anaesthetic at the points where the frame is attached to your head. This takes about 10 minutes.

As the the frame is fitted, you feel some pressure and tightness, but it usually feels better within a few minutes. Once the frame is in place, the doctors and radiographers check it and you have a CT scan or MRI scan.
When the planning is complete, you go to the treatment room. Your head frame is fixed into the radiotherapy machine while you are lying on the treatment couch. You are awake the whole time. Once everything is in place, the couch slides into the machine and the treatment begins.
You won't not feel, or see anything while you are having treatment. Most people either listen to music or sleep.
