X-knife and gamma knife techniques are well-established for cranial stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). Due to differences in their radiation delivery methods, some of the dosimetric parameters of these two techniques differ which may have clinical significance. There are many dosimetric studies comparing linear accelerator based techniques such as X-knife with gamma knife but generally from different institutions. We carried out a retrospective comparative study of the dosimetric parameters of… CONTINUE READING
