Radiosurgery of Multiple Brain Metastases Using Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion

Institution: Hospital Na Homolce, Prague, Czech Republic

  • Patient 1: 63-year-old male, diagnosis: kidney cancer, multiple brain metastases
  • Patient 2: 48-year-old male, diagnosis: lung cancer, multiple brain metastases

Repeated Leksell Gamma Knife® Radiosurgery
Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ with its enlarged space inside the collimator helmet allows unlimited reach to all multiple brain metastases with standard attachment of the stereotactic frame (positioned low and centered on the midline of the head) in one session. In cases where new brain metastases are detected, radiosurgery can be repeated.

Leksell GammaPlan® allows the import of previous treatment plans, their co-registration with current images and superimposition of old treatment plans on them. This planning feature makes it easy to identify new brain metastases unequivocally and evaluate regression of previously treated ones at a glance.
