This webinar will teach doctors and trainees how neurosurgical radiation, or radiosurgery, can treat a wide range of disorders without the need to open the skull.

Mr Jonathan Hyam, Consultant Neurosurgeon, will trace the landmark developments and advances in radiosurgery through to its modern status as a routine therapy which has now expanded beyond the clinical neurosciences.

Webinar topics include: 

  • How radiosurgery differs from conventional radiotherapy and minimises radiation dose to normal brain
  • Describe what neurological conditions can be treated by radiosurgery
  • Value the sophistication of neuro-imaging and technical advances allowing highly precise radiosurgery treatments
