MedLine Citation:
PMID:  18081479     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A contemporary review of the use of stereotactic radiosurgery in the treatment of Cushing disease (CD) is presented with information drawn from a literature review and from the author's experience. Stereotactic radiosurgery is an effective and safe therapeutic alternative for treating CD in carefully selected cases. Improvements in imaging, dose planning, and general understanding of radiobiology are likely to yield better results in the future.
