These processes are ongoing and characterized by significant scientific intensity. On the other hand, experimental research has occurred rudimentarily while maintaining a focus on the radiation effects of single-dose high-precision radiotherapy and has thus attempted to reveal the biologic essence of so-called radiosurgery. A review of the history suggests that this epistemic condition is attributable to the lack of validated scientific theorems. From a historic viewpoint, one might claim that compared with single-dose methodology, fractionation research and practice was backed by a stronger lobby within the radiology/radiotherapy research community.

This describes a well-established action radius of the authors of these texts both within and outside the two radiosurgical communities (Gamma Knife and Linac subgroups). The literature selection was based on textbooks written by active experts and is presented in chronologic order from the current period back to the 1990s [15–21]. I did not aim to provide a comprehensive overview of many issues of different importance, but rather to focus on three essential questions that continue to be discussed intensively at each interventional clinical unit.
