How Does It Work?
CyberKnife is an advanced technology that delivers a specialized form of radiation therapy called stereotactic radiosurgery, or stereotactic body radiation therapy. It is comprised of a compact linear accelerator, a machine that generates a radiation beam, attached to a highly maneuverable robotic arm.
During CyberKnife procedures, patients will lie on a treatment table while the machine’s robotic arm moves around their body delivering high doses of radiation directly to their tumor with pinpoint precision minimizing exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. Most treatment sessions typically last 30 – 60 minutes in 5 or fewer treatments depending on the size, shape and location of your tumor.
