Human care company Elekta AB (STO:EKTA-B.ST) and Brainlab announced on Thursday that they have entered into a technical exchange agreement regarding the new software from Brainlab, Elements Stereotaxy, and Elekta's new precise delivery system, Leksell Vantage Stereotactic System.
SRS is a minimally invasive form of radiation therapy that combines finely collimated radiation beams and stereotaxy. Its purpose is to deliver a high dose of radiation to an extracranial target in the brain (Hoffmann, 2009).
conducted an experiment to measure the accuracy of different stereotactic method with rhesus monkeys, and the results showed that MRI-guided stereotaxy was completely accurate in 80% as compared to 38.5% in atlas-guided stereotaxis.
Stereotactic management of brain abscess, allowing both confirmation of the diagnosis and institution of therapy by aspiration of its contents and identification of the offending organism, has become widespread with the introduction of CT-guided stereotaxy. A review of the recent literature shows several series of brain abscesses primarily treated with stereotactic techniques.

Neurosurgery division (dural repair, ultrasonic aspiration, cranial stabilization, stereotaxy, neuro critical care) were $172.3 million, up from $171.3 million in fiscal 2012.
The additional fast development of computer technology raised the question whether it is possible to use this computer technology also for real time localization of lesions during neurosurgical interventions without the accurate but time consuming classical frame based stereotaxy. The stereotactic frame restricted additionally the surgical operating field and the mechanical construction of the stereotactic system allowed only limited approaches.
