Shaped Beam Radiosurgery Book Description:

Novalis® Shaped Beam Radiosurgery has set new standards by delivering highly precise radiation treatments to tumors anywhere in the body through the use of a proprietary multileaf collimator. By shaping the radiation beam to the exact contours of the tumor or lesion, Novalis permits maximum dose delivery to the entire tumor while protecting healthy tissue; this makes it eminently suitable for the treatment of irregularly shaped tumors. This book provides a complete guide to radiosurgery treatments with Novalis. After a thorough discussion of the clinical and technical basis for Shaped Beam Radiosurgery, current clinical applications are considered in detail, including brain, body, skull base, and spinal tumors as well as arteriovenous malformations. Careful consideration is also given to future developments and applications, including new technologies that promise to offer even more accurate treatments. This state-of-the-art book will appeal to a wide audience of physicians and their multidisciplinary clinical and technical collaborators.

"Stereotactic radiosurgery with several static conformal beams shaped by a micro multileaf collimator (muMLC) is used for treating small irregularly shaped brain lesions. Specific requirements for this technique are a precise localization and positioning of the target (1mm) and a precise (1mm) and numerically accurate (+/-5%) dose delivery. In this
