CyberKnife

Your Thoracic Cyberknife Treatment

CyberKnife® is an advanced method for delivering high-dose radiation therapy while sparing surrounding normal tissue and structures.  The CyberKnife® Robotic radiation therapy system delivers targeted beams of radiation directly into tumors with surgical precision.  CyberKnife® precision may also enable delivery of additional radiation therapy to areas previously treated with standard radiation treatment.  Dr. Skylizard and Radiation Oncologists work together using a computer-controlled robotic arm to precisely target radiation treatment.  Lung tumors are tracked using real-time image guidance during treatment while the robotic arm follows the target during the normal respiratory motion caused by patient breathing.
