Dr. Mark Brenner, Chief of Radiation Oncology, Cyberknife Center, Baltimore USA , is a pioneer in the use of Accuray’s CyberKnife technology for cancer treatment. Regarding the center’s adoption of the new technology, he says that “the whole art and science of radiosurgery is to either gain local control at lower doses of radiation or to deliver higher doses without the complications. The CyberKnife is able to accomplish all of this.”

From the CyberKnife Cancer Center website:

The CyberKnife System from Accuray is the world’s most accurate radiosurgery instrument. It establishes a new gold standard in radiosurgery by precisely ablating tumors and other lesions anywhere in the body, with submillimeter Total Clinical Accuracy.

Using image guidance, robotics, and dynamic respiratory motion tracking, the CyberKnife System delivers superior accuracy and conformality. In fact, as the first device to enable full-body dynamic radiosurgery, the CyberKnife is making possible effective new treatments in clinical areas such as spine, lung, liver, pancreas, pelvic tumors, and prostate.
