How is CyberKnife® different
Standard stereotactic radiosurgery techniques rely on a rigid frame fixed to the patient’s skull for head immobilization. There are other systems for extra-cranial Stereotactic Radiation. These systems are most often uncomfortable. If the target moves with the breathing of the patient, they often require breath holding techniques, which may be difficult for some patients. Frame-based systems mean there is a limit to the number of angles the radiation can be delivered through.

The CyberKnife® System offers maneuverability and versatility that other systems cannot offer, therefore now making it possible to treat tumours anywhere in the body,
especially the brain, spine, liver, lung, pancreas and prostate. The combination of image guidance with the help of X-ray cameras and the very latest computer technology ensures that the CyberKnife® System is able to overcome the limitations of older frame-based radiosurgery systems, such as the Gamma Knife and LINAC based X-Knife.
