Radiation Knife Precision
« on: September 27, 2017, 09:36:22 am »
I am really torn. I have the opportunity to get Gamma Knife Perfextion treatment locally in ABQ from Providers that have treated less ANs or Cyberknife Accuracy with Providers that have more experience with ANs... close by in Colorado Springs.

The Gamma Knife provider suggests limited ability to preserve hearing as they will dose the cochlea with no less than 6gy. Though the Perfextion spec suggests .3mm precision.
The Cyberknife spec is 1mm precision.

Any feedback.   Is Gamma Knife really better?
