WHAT TO EXPECT DURING SPINAL CANCER TREATMENT
With its unique robotic design, the CyberKnife System can precisely target tumors from virtually any angle around a patient’s body. Its integrated image guidance and real-time tumor-tracking software enables the CyberKnife System to ensure that radiation is delivered directly to the tumor. This minimizes the side effects, improves patient outcomes, and offers a better quality of life during and after treatments.
Patients who choose CyberKnife treatments are fitted with a comfortable body cradle and placed on the treatment couch. The CyberKnife’s real-time digital image guidance system locates the spinal tumor, whereafter the robotic arm delivers the radiation, automatically adjusting to the location and movement of the tumor, allowing for treatment from virtually every angle.
