New York/Stuttgart –This second edition of Intracranial Stereotactic Radiosurgery, recently published by Thieme, is authored by renowned experts in neurosurgery, neurology, physics, and radiation oncology, many of whom are pioneers of radiosurgery. The new edition includes information on brain metastases as well as important updates in treatment for skull base tumors and functional disorders. Throughout more than 30 detailed chapters the authors share their vast expertise on this highly precise, minimally invasive form of radiation therapy.
Praise for the previous edition:
“I would highly recommend this book to anyone who deals with intracranial (and ocular) pathology, which may be amenable to stereotactic radiosurgery treatment. It serves as an excellent resource for physicians to provide their patients with the necessary information about this treatment and as such it can be used not only by Neurosurgeons, but also Neurologists and other physicians who may refer patients for intracranial stereotactic radiosurgery.” -- Le Journal Canadien Des Sciences Neurologiques
This updated reference 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.
