    Radiosurgical Options and its Results
  • In 2020 we had at least 2 course projects:
  • 1st) Radiosurgery Course in Madrid, jointly with EGKS.
  • 2nd) Radiosurgery Course at NIMHANS, Bangalore, India
    Both projects have been suspended due to the current Covid 19 pandemic situation

    The courses that I was going to plan through the ZOOM platform have not been accepted as this system has been widely used this year.

    I plan to organize two courses this year using the Zoom platform:

    • New strategies for treating facial pain using radiosurgery
    • Long-term results of the treatment of schwannomas and meningiomas by radiosurgery
      The final decision depends on the interest that these courses arouse.
