In the s, Swedish professors Borje Larsson of the Gustaf Werner Institute, University of Uppsala, and Lars Leksell at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, began to investigate combining proton beams with stereotactic (guiding) devices capable of pinpointing targets within the brain.

Laurent Leksell (born in ) is a Swedish PhD Economics, international business leader and entrepreneur. With his father, Lars, Laurent Leksell jointly founded Elekta AB inwhile he was still a student of the Stockholm School of Economics to exploit the Gamma Knife his father had invented.

Elekta is a Swedish med-tech enterprise specialised in the treatment of cancer and neurosurgical. Introduction. Gamma Knife®, a device for stereotactic radiosurgery for the cranial lesions, was invented and basic principles of the stereotactic radiosurgery formulated by a Swedish neurosurgeon, Lars Leksell between s and s and finished by the installation of the first Gamma Knife® device in [] Since then, this device has undergone several improvements with the advancement in.

Category Archives: Leksell Gamma Knife Society Meeting Series, Dubai, Stereotactic gamma knife radiosurgery was first reported for the treatment of TN by Leksell in Its use, however, remained restricted to few centers until the mids when it started to become more popular.

Radiosurgical treatment of TN has been well investigated with gamma knife devices involving fixed cobalt (60 Co) ng of the target and determination of isodose curves.

The Leksell Gamma Knife Society was established in to provide a forum for Gamma Knife users to share information, experiences, clinical techniques and. ISBN: OCLC Number: Reproduction Notes: Electronic reproduction. [S.l.]: HathiTrust Digital Library, MiAaHDL.

With Leksell Gamma Knife, Elekta has always strived to provide the highest possible accuracy with a treatment solution that is wholly dedicated to the brain. We have the knowledge, the focus and the dedication needed to lead the development of the best tool for treating the brain, always expanding clinical capabilities and operational efficiency.

The first Gamma Knife ® was developed in by Lars Leksell, a Swedish physician and professor of neurosurgery, with the assistance of biophysicist Börje Larsson. Today's Gamma Knife, manufactured by Elekta AB, is based on that early prototype, but has benefited from more than 40 years of advancements in engineering, radiation physics, and computer imaging technology.
