About CyberKnife® Cancer Treatment
The CyberKnife® System uses image-guidance and computer controlled robotics to deliver beams of high-energy radiation to the tumor from various directions. The amount of radiation in an individual beam would not do harm to the tumor, but the convergence of all beams on the tumor delivers a very high and effective dose of radiation.
Using a robotic arm and scans taken prior to treatment, the CyberKnife® System tracks the tumor’s position, detects any tumor or patient movement and automatically corrects the treatment delivery.
This outpatient procedure does not require anesthesia or invasive stabilizing frames. Most patients experience minimal recovery time and can return to normal activities almost immediately.
