Radiosurgery
Radiosurgery, also known as stereotactic radiotherapy, is a medical procedure which allows non-invasive treatment of benign and malignant conditions, arteriovenous malformations (AVM's), and some functional disorders by means of directed beams of ionizing radiation. There are many nervous diseases for which conventional surgical treatment is difficult or has many damaging consequences for the patient because arteries, nerves, and other vital structures can be harmed. The links shown on this page feature the key word ′Radiosurgery’ in their stories:
