What to Expect at Our Center for Spinal Cancer Treatment
With its unique robotic design, the CyberKnife System can precisely target tumors from virtually any angle around a patient’s body. And its integrated image guidance and real-time tumor-tracking software enables the CyberKnife System to ensure that radiation is delivered directly to the tumor, sparing healthy tissue and critical structures and minimizing the side effects in the process.
Patients who choose CyberKnife treatments are typically fitted with a comfortable body cradle and placed on the treatment couch. Digital imaging guidance systems help to locate the spinal tumor and the robotic arm delivering the radiation automatically adjusts to the location and movement of the tumor, which can then be targeted from multiple angles.
