    Radiation Optic Neuropathy after Stereotactic Radiosurgery Christopher A. Girkin, MD,l Christopher H. Corney, MD,2 L. Dade Lunsford, MD,2 Michael L. Goodman, MD,3 Lanning B. Kline, MOl Purpose: The purpose of the study is to report the occurrence of optic neuropathy after stereotactic radiosurgery for perichiasmal by: Radiosurgery: The Concept and Its Development. In , Swedish neurosurgeon Lars Leksell introduced the concept of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS).1 Leksell's initial efforts were directed toward developing a method for using noninvasive lesioning in functional neurosurgery. These efforts used an orthovoltage x-ray tube attached to a stereotactic frame to produce converging beams which Cited by: 6.

STEREOTACTIC RADIOSURGERY (SRS) Model Policies This Model Policy1 addresses coverage for Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). Description Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is a distinct discipline that utilizes externally generated ionizing radiation to inactivate or eradicate definite target(s) in the head without the need to make an incision.

    Summary. Written by internationally known experts in the field, Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy examines one of the fastest-developing subspecialties within radiation oncology. These procedures deliver large doses of radiation in one to five sessions to a precisely determined target. The various aspects of the early types of stereotactic radiosurgery, including requirements for a QA programme, were summarised in the initial AAPM Report. More recent developments in the field of SRT can be found in J. Van Dyk's Compendium, the IAEA Handbook, and the Handbook of Radiotherapy Physics. A comprehensive discussion of both physical.

Physicians who practice stereotactic radiosurgery usually lack the necessary training in mathematics and physics, the technical expertise, experience, dedicated specific technical interest, and time required to comprehensively perform labor-intensive equipment and beam testing.

1 Review. Principles of Stereotactic Radiosurgery is the only contemporary, comprehensive reference for neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists using Gamma Knife and Linear Accelerator technology. Each chapter includes specific case presentations representative of the most commonly treated conditions, including applications for spinal disorders.

Chapters conclude with counterpoint experiences, oriented to treatment options other than radiosurgery 5/5(1). Dynamic stereotactic radiosurgery is a radiosurgical technique based on a medium-energy isocentric linear accelerator and a stereotactic frame.

Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) has emerged as an important innovative treatment for various primary and metastatic cancers. This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the physical/technological, biological, and clinical aspects of SBRT.

It will serve as a detailed resource for this rapidly developing treatment modality. Principles and Practice of Stereotactic Radiosurgery, Second Edition serves as the definitive reference textbook for SRS practitioners. It provides a theoretical basis for the use of therapeutic radiation including imaging techniques and radiobiology.

The bulk of the textbook contains chapters that. Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy: A Comprehensive Guide: Medicine & Health Science Books @ This volume thus delves into each of these benefits and aspects of treatment, guiding physicians to 4/5(1).

Staged radiosurgery, also known as fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery (FSR), is a process in which the total dose of stereotactic radiation is divided into several smaller doses of radiation, on separate days of treatment.

Typically, this consists of two to five treatments. As a means of selecting the optimal stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) treatment modality, a comparison of physical dose distributions to defined targets and nontarget brain tissue has been made for. Abstract. In radiosurgery, instead of using a surgical knife when treating a patient, high-energy ionizing radiation is the tool of choice.

To understand the tumoricidal effects of ionizing radiation, it is important to know how radiation interacts with by: 1.This book is a comprehensive review of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT): its physics, clinical evidence, indications, and future directions.

The utilization of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is increasing internationally because of several factors.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/5(12).
