YOKOHAMA, Japan, June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RapidArc Radiosurgery
, a term for volumetric modulated arc radiosurgery
delivered using a medical linear accelerator (linac) from Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR), enables the precise and simultaneous treatment of multiple metastases in the brain, spine, head & neck, or lung, according to four notable clinical experts who spoke yesterday at a Varian-sponsored symposium at the 12th International Stereotactic Radiosurgery
Society (ISRS) Congress taking place here this week.
Previously introduced Elements for cranial radiosurgery
have focused on enhancing image fusion, distortion correction* of various MRI sequences, interactive segmentation* of tumors and vascular structures, fibertracking*, dose review, and automatic segmentation* of critical structures.
At Henry Ford, we've had longstanding multidisciplinary collaborative research teams conducting research into the optimal use of radiosurgery
to treat tumors of the spine and brain," said neurosurgeon Steven N.
Coverage begins with a brief history of arteriovenous malformation radiosurgery
, the natural history of cerebral arteriovenous malformations and the risk of hemorrhage after radiosurgery
, and the technological evolution of gamma knife radiosurgery
Questions have also been asked about the decision to use a private clinic when radiosurgery
machines of exactly the same kind are available at several NHS hospitals in England.
The articles in this proceedings were first presented during the 8th International Stereotactic Radiosurgery
Society meeting held in San Francisco in June 2007.
The combination of radiation technology and the surgical philosophy of ablation led to Leksell's coinage of the word radiosurgery
