Cutting-edge tech to optimise stereotactic radiosurgery demonstrated live at Arab Health



Cutting-edge technology to optimise diagnostic angiograms for treatment planning for neurosurgery in real-time, will be demonstrated live by a leading clinician at Arab Health 2024.

The procedure is being carried out in a state-of-the-art operating theatre located in the ABHI UK Pavilion by Ms Mary Murphy – a Consultant Neurosurgeon at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurology, Queen Square London.

The live demonstration will showcase new advancements in optimising Stereotactic Radiosurgical treatment of neurovascular disease using the  Brainlab Elements Treatment Planning System, designed to enable a new level of precision in treatment planning for stereotactic radiosurgery.

Ms Murphy will demonstrate the efficacy of the Elements SmartBrush and image Fusion Angio module.

The session will offer insights into how together the modules can optimise diagnostic angiograms for treatment planning, enhancing the patient pathway and experience during radio-surgical planning and treatment.

Ms Murphy said: “The overall patient experience and journey are enhanced with the Amethyst Radiosurgery team, techniques and technologies.

“We are proud to be pioneering this technology at our London facility, where a large proportion of our Private patients come from the Emirates and the Gulf region.

“We are excited to showcase how these unique capabilities can enhance patient outcomes.”

Gamma Knife Radiosurgery (GKRS) (also known as stereotactic radiosurgery) is a well-established method of treating selected brain tumours or lesions in the brain.

It is not surgery in the traditional sense because there’s no incision.

Rather, it uses very precise beams of gamma rays that are directed to the treatment area in the brain, optimised to hit only the target without damaging surrounding healthy tissue.

GKRS is one of the treatment options for Arteriovenous Malformations (AVMs), and well-documented in the UK for its high clinical efficacy when compared to traditional microsurgery.

Amethyst Radiotherapy Queen Square Radiosurgery Centre in London offers state-of-the-art Gamma Knife radiosurgery using cutting-edge Brainlab treatment planning software, a game-changer in stereotactic radiosurgery and radiotherapy. With the Elements Contrast Clearance Analysis software, the Queen Square Radiosurgery team is able to enhance the quality and control of treatments, offering a more precise approach to identifying potential challenges related to radiation necrosis.

The demonstration, “Gamma Knife stereotactic surgery coupled with Brainlab “Elements SmartBrush and Image Fusion Angio module”, led by Ms Murphy, will take place on Tuesday 30th January at 1pm at the ABHI UK Pavilion at Hall 2 Stand F30.

A leading figure in her field, Consultant Neurosurgeon Ms Murphy is at the forefront of using cutting-edge techniques and state-of-the-art technologies, such as Gamma Knife radiosurgery.

Organised by the Association of British HealthTech Industries (ABHI), the ABHI simulated operating theatre will give visitors an unrivalled chance to see a series of ground-breaking surgical simulations performed live across all 4 days.

Arab Health takes place 29 January – 1 February 2024 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai, UAE.
