Doctors at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center Now Offering Precise Image-Guided Radiosurgery for Cancer and Neurological Disorders
Date:9/3/2009

lis Tx radiosurgery platform can also be used to treat a variety of neurological disorders, including trigeminal neuralgia. "To treat trigeminal neuralgia with radiosurgery, you need enormous precision," Dr. Kresl said. "We treat just a short segment of the nerve, right where it exits the brain stem. That requires hitting a target that's only two to four millimeters long and less than a millimeter in diameter." Within a week of launching a radiosurgery program for treatment of trigeminal neuralgia, Dr. Kresl treated three patients. "The treatments are completed in a single 30-minute session," he said.

"It incorporates state-of-the-art technologies for ensuring accurate treatments that can be delivered quickly, and that's good for my patients."

A 3-D CT imager or in-room 2D stereoscopic X-ray imager can be used to position patients for treatment with submillimeter accuracy. In addition, the stereoscopic X-ray imager with Snap Verification generates images during a treatment to ensure accurate targeting throughout.

"This is an important feature of the platform -- the ability to generate images during the treatment delivery or 'beam on' process, in order to monitor and ensure the position of the radiation beam relative to the targeted area," Dr. Kresl said. "This level of precision is what makes it possible for us to treat something as small as a trigeminal ne
