GAMMA KNIFE TREATMENT
“Gamma Knife” refers to a subspecialty of Stereostatic Radiosurgery. Despite having surgery in the name, Radiosurgery does not actually involve making any incisions. Neurosurgeons performing Gamma Knife Treatment use imaging technology to target precise areas of the brain with ionizing radiation to safely burn away tumors without harming the surrounding tissues. The machine uses mulitple beams of gamma radiation projected from several angles. This limits the power of each individual beam to protect the living brain tissue, while concentrating the center point of the beams on the cancerous cells.
