Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    number of participant with adverse event (grade greater than 2), each adverse event will be gradueted according to Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE)Version 4.0

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Survival without limiting adverse events [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Evaluate survival without limiting adverse events (EIL) "severe" and "late", related to treatment with score SOMA-LENT (grade greater than 2).

  • Acceptability [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    percentage of treated patients compared to the number of patients included

  • Treatment efficacy [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Patients may be enrolled on study with measurable disease based on the RECIST, version 1.1. Disease assessment will be undertaken at baseline and then every month after treatment by MRI. Patients will be evaluated for response according to RECIST, v 1.1 guidelines.

    (Eisenhauer et al. 2009).

  • Quality of life [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    assessment with questionnary QLQ C30 and QLQ BN20 of EORTC

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Controlled tumor disease in the primary site and no syndrome metastatic extracranial threatening short-term
  • Presence of 1 to 3 metastases brain symptomatic or not, metachronous primary cancer of a solid, proven itself by histopathological examination
  • In case of multiple lesions sites must be sufficiently spaced so that the PTV can be in separate horizontal planes
  • PS < 2

Exclusion Criteria:

  • One or more lesions > 3 cm in diameter on MRI, or infratentorial location
  • Performed surgical resection or formal indication
  • In progress or finished chemotherapy within the last 4 weeks
  • Partial or total irradiation of brain in the past , or total body irradiation
  • Presence of a second cancer that would be likely to render uncertain the identification of the origin of metastases
