BACKGROUND Although considered slow-growing, low-grade malignancies, chordomas are locally aggressive and destructive tumors with high recurrence rates. OBJECTIVE To assess patient survival, tumor control, complications, and selected variables that predict outcome in patients who underwent Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) as primary, adjuvant,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE In a subset of in vivo MR spectra acquired from pediatric brain tumors, we have observed an unassigned peak. The goal of this study was to determine the molecule of origin, and the prevalence and concentration of this chemical in various pediatric brain tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Single-voxel point-resolved spectroscopy (PRESS)(More)
OBJECT The authors sought to determine the incidence, time course, and risk factors for overall adverse radiation effect (ARE) and symptomatic ARE after stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for brain metastases. METHODS All cases of brain metastases treated from 1998 through 2009 with Gamma Knife SRS at UCSF were considered. Cases with less than 3 months of(More)
OBJECT Large arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) remain difficult to treat, and ideal treatment parameters for volume-staged stereotactic radiosurgery (VS-SRS) are still unknown. The object of this study was to compare VS-SRS treatment outcomes for AVMs larger than 10 ml during 2 eras; Era 1 was 1992-March 2004, and Era 2 was May 2004-2008. In Era 2 the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Treatment of intermediate and high-risk prostate cancer with a high BED has been shown to increase recurrence free survival (RFS). While high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy, given as a boost is effective in delivering a high BED, many patients are not candidates for the procedure or wish to avoid an invasive procedure. We evaluated the(More)
OBJECTIVE Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) with or without whole-brain radiotherapy can be used to achieve local control (> 90%) for small brain metastases after resection. However, many brain metastases are unsuitable for SRS because of their size or previous treatment, and whole-brain radiotherapy is associated with significant neurocognitive morbidity.(More)
OBJECT Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is a potentially important option for patients with skull base chondrosarcomas. The object of this study was to analyze the outcomes of SRS for chondrosarcoma patients who underwent this treatment as a part of multimodality management. METHODS Seven participating centers of the North American Gamma Knife Consortium(More)
OBJECT The surgical treatment of many large arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) is associated with substantial risks, and many are considered inoperable. Furthermore, AVMs larger than 3 cm in diameter are not usually treated with conventional single-session radiosurgery encompassing the entire AVM volume. Volume-staged stereotactic radiosurgery (VS-SRS) is(More)
This work studies the representational mapping across multimodal data such that given a piece of the raw data in one modality the corresponding semantic description in terms of the raw data in another modality is immediately obtained. Such a representational mapping can be found in a wide spectrum of real-world applications including image/video retrieval,(More)
