CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery

Sunnyvale, California, – Accuray™ unveiled the latest generation of its innovative, highly integrated CyberKnife® System at the 47th annual meeting of the American Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO) held October 16 – 20 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. This announcement introduced a host of new capabilities not found in any other radiosurgery solution.

Developed in cooperation with Stanford University, the CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System is the world’s only radiosurgery system that utilizes intelligent robotics. This enables the CyberKnife to ablate tumors anywhere in the body with sub-millimeter accuracy.
The CyberKnife System treats patients in single or staged sessions by delivering multiple beams of precisely directed radiation that converge upon the tumor while minimizing injury to surrounding healthy tissue.

The CyberKnife uses a fully integrated robotic system that includes real-time image guidance to deliver radiation with pinpoint sub-millimeter accuracy while it precisely monitors and corrects for patient and tumor movement.
