Gamma Knife Neurosurgery in the Management of Intracranial Disorders
Mikhail Chernov, Motohiro Hayashi, Jeremy Ganz, Kintomo Takakura
Springer Science & Business Media, Feb 15, 2013 - Medical - 216 pages
The articles in this volume cover the various options of the optimal management of brain tumors, vascular lesions, and functional disorders. They provide a good balance between microneurosurgery and radiosurgery, presenting also alternative surgical and radiosurgical treatment options with discussions on their advantages and disadvantages. The presentation of multiple treatment methods will help to provide better service to patients. Some papers, specifically highlighting alternative treatment options, are accompanied by editorials prepared by recognized experts in the field.
Additional emphasis is put on importance of the advanced neuroimaging techniques for radiosurgical treatment planning and subsequent follow-up.
