Abstract

The struggle to achieve a high degree of conformity around targets of complex morphology has been one of the driving forces in the development of ever more sophisticated radiosurgical devices and intricate treatment delivery. Rarely are radiosurgical targets more complex in shape than those associated with arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). In this report we examine theoretical and practical issues of target delineation and creation of conformal AVM treatment plans, and comment on the concepts of gradient and homogeneity.
