What is CyberKnife?The world’s only roboHc radiosurgery system, CyberKnife treats paHents with a procedure called stereotac(c radiosurgery. StereotacHc radiosurgery is a noninvasive method of treaHng tumors with high-‐dose radiaHon precisely aimed from diﬀerent angles. How does CyberKnife work? CyberKnife does not require surgery and there is no cu7ng or anesthesia required. Comprised of a compact linear accelerator -‐ a machine that generates a radiaHon beam -‐ aRached to a highly maneuverable roboHc arm. • The machine’s roboHc arm moves around you, aiming and ﬁring targeted radiaHon beams from numerous angles. • The imaging and tracking system conHnually updates the tumor locaHon throughout the treatment procedure, compensaHng for paHent movements like breathing. • Treatment sessions typically last 30 -‐ 60 minutes. 2010 West Chester Pike Suite 115 Havertown, PA 19083 (610) 446-‐6850 www.phillycyberknife.com
