About 15 min: Generally, it takes about 5 minutes to position a patient for a treatment. The actual treatment itself may take another 1 or 2 minutes. In most cases, the overall treatment time will last about 15 minutes. The time is much longer for radiosurgery.

Typically 15 minutes: Typically 15 minutes. It depends on the therapy but usually people have sessions five times per week Monday through Friday and the sessions will continue from 3 to 9 weeks. It depends on the tumor and what the program is
