This book is one-of-a-kind comprehensive Radiosurgery Case Review Atlas that includes not only cranial and spinal cases, but also structural and functional radiosurgery ones.
It categorizes the various radiosurgery-treated pathologies, presenting illustrative case reviews for each category. Each case includes a clinical summary, a treatment protocol, a radiosurgery dosimetry summary, the pre-radiosurgery images and the serial, short-term and long-term, follow up images illustrating the clinical and radiologic outcomes of the radiosurgery treatment.Offering the readers a handy step-by-step practical guide to perform safe and effective radiosurgery treatment, this will be a useful toolkit for neurosurgeons, radiation neuro-oncologists and radiation physicists (Radiosurgeons) conducting radiosurgery programs or involved in radiosurgery training.
