Early Experience with Elements Cranial SRS: Trajectory Based Treatment Planning


James Robar, PhD, from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada outlines his first experiences using Brainlab Elements Cranial SRS as well as his department’s approach to 4pi optimization beginning with creating organs at risk composite overlap maps. He then goes on to describe using Elements Cranial SRS in three simple steps: Selecting the treatment protocol, defining the art setup and using the objective function to determine the most appropriate setup. Using 10 cases of vestibular schwannoma as an example, he demonstrates planning with the software and discusses the results in greater detail.
