Book Description

In this third edition of Intracranial Stereotactic Radiosurgery, Drs. Lunsford and Sheehan provide a contemporary assessment of the practice of stereotactic radiosurgery. Topics include benign and malignant tumors, cerebrovascular abnormalities, and functional disorders. There are also several new chapters including ones focused on immunotherapy, hypofractionation, and repeat radiosurgery. Chapters contain many figures and tables to illustrate the key concepts of the work. Contributors to the book represent many of the luminary stereotactic radiosurgery centers throughout the world.

The current book which is comprised of 34 chapters represents a major update to prior editions. It is intended to be both very readable and also to serve as an accessible and comprehensive reference on stereotactic radiosurgery.
