CyberKnife®: State of the Art Equipment
CyberKnife® is state-of-the-art radiotherapy equipment for robotic radiosurgery, which allows the radiation oncologists to treat pathologies painlessly, without requiring any surgery. CyberKnife® uses pencil beams of radiation, which can be directed to any part of the body from any direction with the help of a robotic arm. The system tracks the tumour, detects any movement of the tumour or patient, and automatically corrects its positioning. It then targets the tumour with multiple beams of high-energy radiation and destroys abnormal tissue without causing any damage to the surrounding areas. The tumour position is verified before each beam delivery for accuracy.
The treatment is so accurate that it is now possible to treat tumours previously thought to be inoperable. Although the results of the treatment always do not show immediately, in most of the cases the procedure will initially stop the growth of tumours, before gradually reducing their size. As there is no open surgery in this treatment, the normal risk complications associated with surgery are eliminated, as is the need for a long recovery time. This makes the treatment suitable even for those who are not well enough to cope with surgery.
