Robotically assisted stereotactic radiosurgery for intracranial indications

Record ID 32011001471
Authors' objectives:

Robotically assisted stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is a radiotherapy that is delivered using bony landmarks or a custom-designed mask containing optical markers to provide reference points for precise three-dimensional localization of the target area. With the aid of a computerized robotic system for one or more steps in the procedure, this approach enables precise targeting of radiation therapy, which minimizes the radiation dose to critical, healthy tissues near the target. Robotically assisted SRS has been introduced for a variety of indications such as malignant and benign tumors, vascular malformations, and trigeminal neuralgia.
