The Inverse Planning software module for Leksell Gamma Plan facilitates the creation of inverse plans for Gamma Knife radiosurgery. It comprises two independent functions: filling and optimization. The filling function makes a preliminary estimate of the dose distribution of a given target volume. Optimization improves the preliminary plan by searching for a minimum of the goal function. Planning times are considerably reduced and a good plan can be completed in minutes, even for complex cases.
Users can fully exploit the strengths of Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ with Inverse Planning by creating optimal plans that employ composite shots based on the unique sectoring design of the collimation system.
Inverse Planning makes it possible for even less-experienced users to quickly and easily create optimal treatment plans, while effectively managing a large number of variables.
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.
