Functional Planning, an optional software module for use with Leksell GammaPlan, facilitates target localization.
The AC-PC line can easily be defined in 3D space regardless of the imaging plane(s) in which it is located. The patient’s images can then be realigned with the AC-PC line so they are truly axial, coronal and sagittal, making them easier to reference with different brain atlases.
Frame attachment is also facilitated since perfect frame alignment with the AC-PC line is no longer necessary.
Targets can be localized by using formulas based on distances from the AC-PC line. The corresponding stereotactic coordinates are automatically calculated.

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.
