Optional Gamma Knife Tour®

Those attending the Acoustic Neuroma Conference are invited to tour the Gamma Knife® facility!

The Princess Alexandra Hospital is the home of Gamma Knife® Centre of Queensland. This is the only Gamma Knife® technology available in the public hospital system in Australia and the first and only service in Queensland.

Gamma Knife® surgery is a well-established method to treat selected targets in the brain; but it is not a knife. Instead, highly focused beams of radiation are directed to the treatment area in the brain.

PLEASE NOTE: The tour is subject to COVID restrictions and limited tickets are available due to social distancing requirements. Please pre-register for a free ticket while registering for the conference.

Please meet at 11:15am near the water feature in the Translational Research Institute (TRI) Atrium. The tour with Associate Professor Matthew Foote is from 11:30am – 12:00pm.
