Convolution is an optional software module in the Leksell GammaPlan portfolio. It enables accurate dose calculation for the treatment of heterogeneous tissue – such as tissue-air and tissue-bone interfaces – to facilitate rapid generation of dose plans for these tissues. Convolution provides dose calculation accuracy that approaches the quality of the Monte Carlo algorithm.* Users can choose TMR (tissue-maximum ratio) or Convolution depending on target localization.
* Based on the results of benchmarking comparisons between Convolution and Monte Carlo calculations.

Today, Gamma Knife surgery is performed in hundreds of leading hospitals and clinics around the world. Around 70,000 patients undergo Gamma Knife surgery every year, and this unique procedure has an impressive scientific track record with thousands of peer-reviewed articles. No other non-invasive treatment method in this field has greater clinical acceptance.
