Techniques of Stereotactic Radiosurgery
Stereotactic navigation and radiosurgery share a rich history highlighted by innovative minds, technological advances, and clinical success. Although the two concepts are in many ways intimately joined, radiosurgery could not exist without a thorough understanding of the fundamental principles of stereotaxis. Just as the original concept of radiosurgery was a natural, albeit inspired, application of the ideas of stereotactic navigation, advances in radiosurgery over the years have largely been preceded by innovations in stereotaxy.
