Stereotactic Radiosurgery is the use of computer assisted and image guided radiation treatment that accurately targets tumour, vascular malformation and other disease condition to less that 1mm accuracy.
CyberKnife is a frameless, robotic image guidance stereotactic system designed to overcome the limitations of other existing stereotactic system e.g. Linac based system or Gamma Knife
It is also able to reach areas of the body previously thought untreatable or inoperable by conventional radiotherapy.
In a Cyberknife treatment, beams of high energy radiation are delivered from outside the body, which targets the tumour precisely with minimal or no complication side effects.
CyberKnife® was approved by the US FDA in 2001. It is a frameless precise robotic system based on radiation therapy technology proven for over 30 years. Thousands of patients have received CyberKnife® treatments through out the world and many clinical evidences with CyberKnife® have been published in medical journals.
