What to expect with Cyberknife treatment?

Prior to treatment with the CyberKnife® System, the patient undergoes imaging procedures to determine the size, shape and location of the tumour. The process begins with a standard high-resolution CT scan, or for certain tumours other imaging techniques, such as MRI, angiography or PET, may also be used.
Following the scanning, the image data is then digitally transferred to the CyberKnife® System’s treatment planning workstation, where the treating physician identifies the exact size, shape and location of the tumour. A qualified physicist then uses the CyberKnife® software to generate a treatment plan to provide the desired radiation dose to the identified tumour location while avoiding damage to the surrounding healthy tissue. The patient does not need to be present during this step in the process.
During a CyberKnife® procedure, the patient lies comfortably on the treatment table, which automatically adjusts to the required position. Anaesthesia is not required, as the procedure is painless and non-invasive. The treatment generally lasts between 30 and 90 minutes and is typically completed in one to five visits.
