This is a multi‐authored text reporting the utility of a technique described in the introductory chapter as ‘the most important advance in neurosurgery over the past 20 years’. Stereotactic radiosurgery is defined as: the precise delivery of a single fraction of high dose ionizing radiation to an imaging defined target.

The book is a practical guide for neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists willing to better understand the contemporary multimodal management of neurosurgical diseases including, but not limited to, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS).

Since its invention s, SRS has dramatically impacted the treatment and prognosis of several neurosurgical. Background: Here, we compared the toxicity profiles of contemporary stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), modern fractionated radiotherapy (FRT), and transsphenoidal surgery used to treat nonfunctioning pituitary macroadenomas.

JAMA ; ). A full time database coordinator insures that appropriate follow-up information is available on each radiosurgery patient. This database has facilitated the continuous improvement of radiosurgical treatment at UF and has served as the substrate for over published articles, chapters, and books on stereotactic radiosurgery.

Books shelved as medical-physics: The Essential Physics of Medical Imaging by Jerrold T. Bushberg, Introduction to Radiological Physics and Radiation Dos. Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) was developed with the aim of creating a minimally invasive technique capable of precisely generating a focal lesion in the brain.

In his first procedure, Lars Leksell used an orthovoltage X-ray source adapted to his arc-centered stereotactic frame to treat a. single fraction stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) or fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT), two techniques that maximize the sparing of critical organs and minimize morbidity without compromising local tumor control Most studies limit the use of SRS to small spherical lesions in close proximity to organs at risk12,13 and chose SRT.

Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) of an intracranial lesion, or radiosurgery, combines the use of a stereotactic apparatus and energetic radiation beams to irradiate the lesion with a single treatment. Stereotactic Radiotherapy (SRT) utilizes the stereotactic apparatus and radiation beams for multiple fractions Size: 2MB.

The overall local treatment paradigm of brain metastases, which includes whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT) and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), continues to evolve. Local therapies play an important role in the management of brain metastases. The choice of local therapy depends on factors that involve the patient (performance status, expected survival, and age), the prior treatment history, and Cited by: 7.
