Leksell Gamma Knife® (LGK) Icon is the most recent LGK system that enables high-precision frameless stereotactic radiosurgery. The treatment planning system tailored for the LGK, the Leksell GammaPlan®, can be used either by manual forward planning or inverse planning. Leksell Gamma Knife® Lightning is the new inverse planning software that provides an optimizer that calculates inverse plans based on a set of constraints defined by the user.

Dr Florian Stieler and Manon Spaniol from the Department of Radiation Oncology and Medical faculty, Mannheim, will present their work on comparing manual forward treatment planning for LGK SRS to inverse planning using a pre-release of the Leksell Gamma Knife® Lightning.

This webinar will give great insight into the clinical value of the new inverse planning tool with improved plan quality measures and reduced Beam-on-Time compared to manual forward planning.
