Precision Cyberknife technology involves no cutting. Instead it directs thousands of beams of high-dose radiation with pinpoint accuracy to target your tumor. Precision Cyberknife minimizes exposure to healthy surrounding tissue, avoiding many of the short- and long-term side effects of conventional radiation treatments.
The Precision Cyberknife system is composed of a radiation delivery device called a linear accelerator, which is mounted on a robotic arm. The flexibility of the robotic arm enables the technology to delivery radiation to tumors anywhere in your body.
The technology uses sophisticated software and advanced imaging to track tumor and patient movement. Because of this real-time guidance, Precision Cyberknife eliminates the need for you to restrict your movement or to hold your breath - a requirement that is typical with many traditional therapy treatments.
