Each year, over a half million people will be told they have a brain abnormality that includes lesions such as tumors or lesions that cause seizures. Patients will be asked to consider various procedures and therapies recommended by their physicians. These animations help to show what to expect during treatment and also illustrate how laser therapy can treat lesions of different size and location in the brain.

Lesions 2cm or Less

The lesion measures 2 cm or less in any dimension, may not be symmetrical and is considered to be “small.”

Symmetrical Lesions Greater Than 2cm

The lesion measures 2 cm or greater in all dimensions and is spherically shaped. All dimensions of the lesion are nearly identical.

Asymmetrical Lesions Greater Than 2cm

The lesion measures 2 cm or greater in all dimensions. The lesion is not spherically shaped, but has one more dimensions which is larger than the others.

Difficult to Access Lesions

Tumors deep within the brain may be considered difficult to access and pose additional concerns for patients and the physicians treating them. Tumors in regions near critical brain pathways can prove especially challenging for physicians who work to remove them without damaging surrounding vital structures.

Temporal Lobe Lesions

The temporal lobe processes sounds and spoken words as well as memory and emotion. Tumors occurring in the temporal lobe may often impair normal functioning in this region.

Multiple Lesions

Treatment of multiple brain lesions can become complex for patients and physicians. Your physician may choose one or more different treatment options for these lesions in a single stage or multiple treatment stages.

Posterior Fossa Lesions

A posterior fossa lesion presents some unique challenges for treatment. These lesions are located at the base of the skull near the brainstem and cerebellum, which are vital for controlling functions such as movement, balance and breathing. A lesion located in the posterior fossa can also block the flow of spinal fluid, which can increase pressure on the brain and spinal cord.
