Gamma knife

Gamma knife

This article includes two powerpoint presentations about radiosurgery. Radiosurgery is a medical procedure that allows non-invasive treatment of benign and malignant tumors. It is also known as stereotactic radiotherapy. Radiosurgery is especially helpful for the localized, highly precise treatment of brain tumors.
