CyberKnife®



The CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System is radiation delivery system using a novel treatment approach. The main elements of the CyberKnife are (1) the radiation produced from a small linear particle accelerator producing 6MV X-rays and (2) a robotic arm which allows the energy to be directed at any part of the body from any direction, and (3) X-ray imaging cameras located on supports around the patient allowing instantaneous X-ray images to be obtained.

The CyberKnife System uses image-guidance and computer controlled robotics to deliver multiple beams of high-energy radiation to the tumor from virtually any direction. Designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body with sub-millimeter accuracy, the CyberKnife System tracks the tumor's position, detects any tumor or patient movement and automatically corrects the treatment delivery.
