Intracranial Stereotactic Radiosurgery

by L Dade Lunsford

This second edition is written by renowned experts

in neurosurgery, neurology, physics, and radiation oncology, many of whom are

pioneers of radiosurgery. Throughout more than 30 detailed chapters, the authors

share their vast expertise on this highly precise, minimally invasive form of

radiation therapy.

The first few chapters lay a foundation for understanding the

differentiations in types of SRS technology: Leksell Gamma Knife®, Novalis,

Linac and Proton Beam Radiosurgery, and Cyberknife, followed by an explanation

on the physics and radiobiology of SRS. The remaining chapters provide a

detailed discussion of all pathologies and disorders currently treated.


  • Radiosurgical procedures for a wide range of intracranial

    conditions/diseases including arteriovenous malformations, meningiomas,

    pituitary adenomas, trigeminal neuralgia, obsessive-compulsive disorder,

    epilepsy, ocular disorders, pediatric brain tumors, and


  • Important updates on skull base tumors, functional disorders,

    and brain metastases.

  • Evidence-based findings covering indications,

    patient selection, benefits, limitations, outcomes, potential complications, and

    alternative treatment modalities.

This updated reference tool is an invaluable, comprehensive guide to current

concepts in SRS. It is a must-have resource for neurosurgeons, radiation

oncologists, neuroradiologists, and medical physicists, from residents to

advanced clinicians.
