Image-Guided Hypofractionated Stereotactic Radiosurgery: A Practical Approach to Guide Treatment of Brain and Spine Tumors by Arjun Sahgal

The recent development of hypofractionated stereotactic radiation therapy (SRT), which calls for one to five fractions of high-dose radiation to be administered using special equipment, has resulted in the need for education on practice guidelines.

Image-Guided Hypofractionated Stereotactic Radiosurgery: A Practical Approach to Guide Treatment of Brain and Spine Tumors offers comprehensive, how-to guidance on hypofractionated SRT for brain and spine metastases, glioma, benign tumors, and other tumor types. Presenting the state of the art of the technology and practice, this book:

  • Discusses the pros and cons of hypofractionated SRT compared to single-fraction radiosurgery, providing a deeper understanding of radiosurgery and radiobiology
  • Explains the toxicity and adverse effects of hypofractionated SRT, aiding practitioners in communicating the risks and benefits of treatment and in obtaining their patients' consent
  • Outlines the current standards for safe practice, including checklists for implementation

Comprised of chapters authored by well-recognized experts in the radiation, oncology, and neurosurgery communities, Image-Guided Hypofractionated Stereotactic Radiosurgery: A Practical Approach to Guide Treatment of Brain and Spine Tumors delivers a level of technological and clinical detail not available in journal papers.
