WHAT IS GAMMA KNIFE RADIOSURGERY
Leksell Gamma Knife
The Leksell Gamma Knife is a state-of-the-art revolutionarydevice which consists of an array of cobalt 60 sources that emit Gamma ray Photons at a predictable rate. These photons may be viewed as energy beams that can be focused in much the same way that a magnifying glass focuses sunbeams. It delivers 201 intersecting beams of radiation to a specific target with radiation dose gradient such that absorbed dose in the surrounding healthy tissue is minimal. This allows non-invasive (without opening the skull) brain surgery with extreme precision and without injury to normal brain. When used in conjunction with a stereotactic head frame, the precision of delivery is 0.3 mm. Its unique design with no moving parts gives it durability and accuracy along with operational ease.
Gamma Knife Radiosurgery
Gamma knife Radiosurgery is a non-invasive treatment for treating brain diseases. It is surgery without opening of the skull and uses gamma rays to destroy lesions in the brain. The gamma rays are precisely aimed in such a way that maximum concentration of radiation is directed at the diseased part of the brain while the surrounding tissues remains unharmed. Radiosurgery can be especially useful for those patients who are not suitable for conventional open surgery due to illness or advanced age. In several neurosurgical cases, Gamma Knife is the only feasible treatment modality.
