A system for stereotactic irradiation and magnetic resonance evaluations in the rat brain.

PURPOSE A stereotactic fixation and localization device developed for small animal stereotactic radiosurgery is described. METHODS AND MATERIALS Irradiated volumes of spherical shape down to 1.7 mm in diameter at the 80% isodose level are attainable. The fixation device can also be used for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and allows target localization… CONTINUE READING
