Helpful Resources

CyberKnife® takes radiation therapy to the next level by combining CT imaging with computer-controlled robotics. This unique combination of technology allows CyberKnife® to continually track and correct for tumor position changes and patient movement, to deliver the most precise treatment available.

CyberKnife® has sub-millimeter accuracy, meaning that there is less than a millimeter difference from target area to delivery area. For patients, that translates to more effective treatment with fewer side effects.

Because of its extreme precision, CyberKnife® can be used on tumors anywhere in the body, without need for patients to wear an invasive and uncomfortable metal head frame, as with other radiosurgery treatments.
