By providing a 3D view of the target and surrounding brain structures, the Gamma Knife Icon allows doctors to precisely target areas and also to treat larger lesions without any significant complications from using a higher dose of radiation for the larger lesion. This means that anything that could not be treated in a single dose (like a larger tumor or mass) can now be staged over a few weeks.
