What is Cyberknife




CyberKnife® is the world’s first and only robotic radiosurgery device used to treat cancerous tumours anywhere in the body. This sofisticated device is an alternative solution to the traditional method of surgery using a scalpel. Radiosurgery conducted with the use of CyberKnife® is painless, non-invasive and problem-free for patients. The device destroys the abnormal tissue with a precisely targeted radiation beam with an accuracy of a fraction of a millimetre. This method also enables treatment of tumours which are inoperable because of their inaccessible position. The computerised system, which directs the radiation beams, is programmed on the basis of diagnostic results: CT (Computerised Tomography), MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and PET (Positron Emission Tomography).
