Radiosurgery and NeuroTomotherapy | Dr. Prem Pillay, Singapore
Tomotherapy represents the future of radiation therapy . When applied to the brain and spine we have termed it NeuroTomotherapy. Older forms of precision radiation,( also called radiosurgery, stereotactic radiotherapy or fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery) include Gamma knife, X-knife, Cyberknife and Novalis.
NeuroTomotherapy allows real time Image Guided precision radiation treatment to tumors of the brain and spine. Intensity Modulations (IMRT) and the presence of of a MicroMultileaf Collimator (MMLC) allows accurate shaping of the energy beams to each unique tumor volume and an effective dose to be given.
