Gamma Knife Users Share Latest Advances for Treating Cancer, Other Brain Disorders at Society Meeting in Greece
Date:5/12/2010

Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion is a stereotactic radiosurgery system for brain and head targets that streamlines radiosurgery workflow and expands the treatable volume through an automated, multi-source collimator. Perfexion provides rapid set-up and treatment delivery to one or more tumors in a single session, and the potential to treat lesions anywhere in the head. The Extend program for Perfexion enables clinicians to treat–over two to five radiosurgery sessions–patients with larger tumors or lesions close to critical structures located in the brain, skull base and in other head/neck regions. Extend non-invasively fixes or immobilizes the patient's head, making hypofractionated Gamma Knife surgery practical for these cases.

Additional speakers will present their clinical experience using Leksell Gamma Knife to treat acoustic neuromas, benign and malignant tumors—particularly metastases—skull base lesions, AVMs and functional disorders.

Radiosurgery pioneers to be honored

In addition, Professor Ladislau Steiner, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Neurosurgery and Radiology at the University of V
