  Dr. Leksell has pioneered stereotaxic radiosurgery, and in his volume he briefly describes the technical aspects of this promising technique. The book is recommended to students of stereotaxy as a well prepared manual for a classical : Edgar M. Housepian. 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). This volume covers stereotactic principles and functional stereotaxis. Amongst the stereotactic principles are discussions of frame-based and frameless systems of stereotaxis, image guidance stereotaxis, atlases and the technical aspects of radiosurgery.

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. Place the mouse on a warm pad, and place the head in a stereotactic device. 3. Prepare the area for surgery with 10% betadine followed by 70% isopropyl alcohol. 4. Cover the animal, which has been positioned in the prone position, with sterile drape. 5. Make a cm incision in the skin over the cranium, and dissect away the periosteum. 6.   Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) refers to the precise and focused delivery of a single, high dose of radiation in a single session and has been used to treat various intracranial and skull base lesions. The dosimetric characteristics of SRS, namely a highly conformal isodose distribution and a very steep dose gradient of dose fall-off beyond. Covers all image-guided neurosurgery tools, including robotic surgical devices; Ideal reference for topics relating to neurosurgery, imaging, stereotaxis, radiosurgery, radiology, epilepsy, MRI, the use of medical robotics, lasers, and more.
