Stereotactic Systems, Frame-Guided, Radiosurgical, Gamma
Definition : Radiosurgical frame-guided computer-aided stereotactic systems designed to aid in the performance of surgical procedures from the exterior of the body using a single high dose of ionizing radiation provided by Cobalt-60 gamma radiation sources. These systems typically combine medical imaging, a rigid frame (e.g., a headframe) attached to the patient body for guidance, dedicated computer software, and a radiation delivery assembly with a patient table and a control console. Frame-guided radiosurgical linac stereotactic systems are mainly intended for use in neurosurgery (e.g., arteriovenous malformations, neuromas, adenomas, and neoplasms).
