CyberKnife is an innovative, non-invasive radiation treatment that specializes in prostate tumors. Using sub-millimeter accuracy, CyberKnife Systems deliver radiation so precisely that exposure to the surrounding tissues and organs is drastically reduced.
In any prostate cancer treatment, the prostate can move up to two inches unpredictably. The CyberKnife System targets the tumor’s exact position in real time to maintain precise accuracy before the radiation dose is delivered. This ensures a more effective treatment, maximizing the radiation’s effectiveness on the tumor itself.
CyberKnife uses a linear accelerator at the end of a robotic arm to enable the machine to deliver its radiation doses from hundreds of angles, resulting in the most direct and accurate radiation therapy possible. With a maximum of 5 treatment sessions, lasting no longer than a week, CyberKnife has shown improved results and reduced side effects in patients.
