Intracranial tumor

Tumor in the intracranial compartment.

Better visualization (surgical microscope), intraoperative MRI and imaging-based navigational systems (with or without technologies to account for brain shift) have improved the ability of neurosurgeons to identify tumor and to distinguish it from normal tissues.

see Intracranial tumor surgery.

Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) allows for the treatment of intracranial tumors with a high degree of dose conformality and precision. There are, however, certain situations wherein the dose conformality of GKRS is desired, but single-session treatment is contraindicated. In these situations, a traditional pin-based GKRS head frame cannot be used, because it precludes fractionated treatment.
