The authors investigated the use of gamma knife surgery (GKS) in the treatment of central neurocytoma, a usually benign primary brain tumor of the lateral and third ventricles. Four patients with subtotally resected or recurrent central neurocytomas were retrospectively studied. The prescription isodose was 9 to 13 Gy to the 30 to 50% peripheral isodose(More)
BACKGROUND Recent research has demonstrated that the adult mammalian CNS is capable of regeneration. This regeneration is often initiated as a response to thermal, chemical or mechanical injury. The effects of radiation on the mammalian CNS have also been found to aid in certain regeneration processes. METHOD In our project we examined the potential(More)
The gastrointestinal tract is the most common location for primary extranodal non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) with cases less commonly found in the intestine. The majority of primary intestinal B-cell lymphomas are exophytic, whereas enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphomas present predominantly as thickened plaques, ulcers or strictures. Crohn's disease (CD) is(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the geometric distortion of angiographic images created from a commonly used digital x-ray imaging system and the performance of a commercially available distortion-correction computer program. A 12 x 12 x 12-cm wood phantom was constructed. Lead shots, 2 mm in diameter, were attached to the surfaces of the phantom. The(More)
In order to determine the effectiveness of gamma knife (GK) radiosurgery in patients with malignant melanoma metastases, the authors conducted a prospective multicenter study. Forty-five patients with a total of 96 lesions were treated and followed to measure survival time, tumor control rate, and Karnofsky Performance Scale (KPS) score. The mean survival(More)
