The Leksell Gamma Knife focuses the radiation of 201 individual Cobalt-60 sources through the ports of a collimator helmet to the geometric center of the helmet. This precise collimation together wtih sub-millimeter positioning accuracy, combine to produce an extremely well defined focal point.

    The shape of the targeted structure is then matched to the amalgamation of several spherical targets or 'shots'. This conformation to shape of the lesion being treated is a vital aspect of the Gamma Knife surgery planning, as it is rare for a brain tumour to be round and homogenous.

What Our Client Says

Almost every day, we receive warm, wonderful letters of thanks from former patients, their families and friends. We thank them for taking the time to praise the excellent care they received, for telling us about their recovery and for sharing their “Rancan Gamma Knife Centre Experience” with us.

I wanted to let all of you know that my family and I appreciated the wonderful care on my 'day' at the Rancan gamma knife center. Your kindness and the pleasant attitude made it much easier to deal with it all. Thanks for the pictures - my kids loved them! Mom is a space alien!
