The presentation is to be made by the CyberKnife Center of Miami's Chief of Medical Physics, James Hevezi, PhD., FACR/FAAPM, and will encompass the definitive treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia with the CyberKnife image guided robotic radiosurgery system. The presentation information for neurosurgical patient treatment includes:
- CyberKnife engages and utilizes 3D; which is integral to treatment delivery system
- Planning based on Computed Tomography of 3D patient structures
- For intracranial targets, MRI data set is fused to CT baseline data set
- System plans & treats from 100 beam stopping points around patient
- Since it is a frameless system, can split dose plan & delivery in multiples
The CyberKnife can perform this surgery with:
* No incision
* No blood
* No anesthesia
