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.
