U.S NeuroSurgical's Leksell Gamma Knife is a unique stereotactic radiosurgical device used to treat brain tumors and other malformations of the brain without invasive surgery. Its Gamma Knife delivers a single, high dose of ionizing radiation emanating from 201 cobalt-60 sources positioned about a hemispherical, precision machined cavity, and the lesion is first targeted with precision accuracy using advanced imaging and three dimensional treatment planning techniques such as CT Scans or MR Scans.

U.S NeuroSurgical's services include: IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy) to treat tumors to a higher dose, retreat irradiated cancers and safely treat tumors located close to vital organ areas; tomotherapy, a fully integrated state-of-the-art radiation therapy delivery system to target conformal radiation treatment to the patient's tumor while helping to limit damage to surrounding tissues; Computerized Tomography (CT), scanners produce a series of successive images; Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) that measures the change in the field's energy as patients are exposed to various radio frequencies; Positron Emission Tomography (PET) that provides a color-coded image of the body's function, metabolism and structure; and Magnetic-Encephalography (MEG) that allows scientists to study the brain in real time.
