Stereotactic Radiosurgery

Overview

Stereotactic radiosurgery is changing how brain tumors and vascular disorders of the brain are being treated by the neurosurgeon. Through deep beam radiation these disorders are effectively being treated with a minimum of invasive disturbance felt by the patient. Both the procedures and the sophisticated equipment involved in this burgeoning field are presented in depth in this text.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A snapshot of the current knowledge of techniques, results, and complications relating to doing brain surgery with radiation rather than with knives, first developed in the 1950s and under constant revision. Practitioners and researchers from around the world provide information on technical considerations, radiation physics, radiobiology, radiosurgical systems, clinical results, and future directions. Includes 11 color plates, and is otherwise highly illustrated in black and white. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
