Cancer and Radiosurgery
The radiosurgery center at our partner hospital is the first clinical reference site in Asia for BrainLAB of Germany, for superior treatment modalities such as stereotactic radiotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRT & SRS). Surgeons use the powerful BrainSCAN computer planning software and BrainLAB's micro-Multileaf Collimator fully integrated with the varian linear accelerator for precise dynamic conformal arc stereotactic radiotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery.
In addition, with Varian's 120-Multileaf Collimator, 3-D Conformal Radiation Therapy is routinely performed. This means that highly conformal and precise radiotherapy dosage can be delivered to the lesion according to shape and size, while sparing normal surrounding tissues or critical organs.
Radiosurgery is a non-invasive way of treating brain tumors where high focus radiation is used to burn the tumors.
