Polymer gel in rat skull to assess the accuracy of a new rat stereotactic device for use with the Gamma Knife

Abstract

Accurate targeting is crucial for the irradiation of a small-volume animal brain. We propose an original method, based on a polymer gel, to determine the accuracy and reproducibility of irradiation using a new stereotactic frame. An in-house designed rat stereotactic frame, compatible with the Gamma Knife, was constructed. The rat brain was then removed… (More)
