Acoustic Neuroma

Acoustic Neuroma

An acoustic neuroma on the nerve sheath of the vestibular portion of the 8th cranial nerve is an operatively challenging tumor ideally suited for stereotactic radiosurgery, a volumetric modulated arc technique that allows for highly conformal, intensity-modulated dose distributions to be delivered with a single 358° rotation of the gantry of the linear accelerator.
