Meet the CyberKnife
The CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System is an advanced technology that delivers a specialized form of radiation therapy called stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). It is comprised of a linear accelerator, a machine that generates a radiation beam, attached to a highly maneuverable robotic arm. The CyberKnife is the only device that verifies the exact tumor position even with tumor movement, then adjusts the robot to precisely target the tumor. The robot moves and bends around the patient, approaching the tumor from potentially thousands of unique angles, maximizing the radiation dose delivered to the tumor and minimizing the dose to surrounding healthy tissue.
