  • 5. CyberKnife + Lung Cancer Prior to stereotactic body radiosurgery treatment with CyberKnife, small tissue markers known as fiducials are implanted in or near the tumor to help the CyberKnife pinpoint the tumor location throughout each treatment, so that the radiation beams can be locked on the tumor.
