CYBERKNIFE OVERCOMES THE DISADVANTAGES OF OTHER RADIATION THERAPIES
The CyberKnife System is the most advanced technology for treating spinal tumors. The CyberKnife System is clinically proven to reduce side effects and enables completion of treatment in five sessions or less.
Other radiation treatments are unable to track and automatically correct for patient and tumor movement and instead treat the tumor as well as the surrounding areas, causing damage to healthy tissues around the tumor — this leads to more side effects. Other systems are also limited to the cervical spine, and require an invasive head frame to stabilize the head during treatment. The CyberKnife is the only treatment that can track and correct for the movement of the tumor in real-time and ensure that radiation is accurately delivered.
This precision allows the CyberKnife to deliver a higher dose of radiation and effectively treat the tumor in one to five sessions, unlike conventional radiotherapy that can take five to eight weeks. And by minimizing side effects, patients can continue their normal daily routine during treatment.
