A New Comprehensive Text Fills Gap in Medical Literature on Radiosurgery

Press release from: Thieme Publishers

New York, NY - Radiosurgery holds many advantages over surgery. First, there is no incision, second, there is no risk of bleeding, infection, or other possible complications that sometimes occur with open surgery. Intracranial Stereotactic Radiosurgery is considered one of the most current and comprehensive books available about surgery that utilizes radiation. Published by Thieme, this reference work addresses both the benefits as well as the limitations of radiosurgical techniques and describes the outcomes, possible complications and their management as well as alternative treatments.

"Intracranial Stereotactic Radiosurgery aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of modern-day intracranial radiosurgery. The text includes detailed discussions on radiobiology, indications, methods, outcomes, and complications associated with radiosurgery," states author Dr. Jason Sheehan, MD, PhD, University of Virginia Health Sciences Center, Department of Neurological Surgery, Charlottesville, Virginia.

The book starts with an overview of the history of radiosurgery and is followed by a detailed summary of the radiobiology. This authoritative text , which contains more than 100 high-quality illustrations, showcases perspectives from internationally recognized experts in the field. It presents an overview of all the currently available treatment systems while also laying out detailed discussions of radiosurgical procedures for various conditions such as movement disorders and epilepsy.

“The past decade has seen rapid improvement in radiosurgical outcomes. Technological advances, including improvements in dose delivery, dose selection, and targeting with multimodality high resolution neuroimaging have helped to advance this field,” says author L. Dade Lunsford, MD, FACS, Department of Neurosurgery, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

This up-to-date resource fills the gap in current literature and will appeal to neurological surgeons, radiation oncologists as well as medical physicists throughout all stages of their learning.
