Features and Advantages of CyberKnife Technology

*  Ho et al A Study of the Accuracy of Cyberknife Spinal Radiosurgery using Skeletal Structure Tracking, Neurosurgery 60[ONS Suppl 1]:ONS-147-ONS-156, 2007

Additional features of the CyberKnife

- Iris™ Variable Aperture Collimator – Rapidly manipulates beam geometry to deliver up to 12 beam sizes from each linac position with characteristics virtually identical to that of fixed circular collimators.


- Xsight® Spine Tracking System – Eliminates the need for surgical implantation of fiducials by using the bony anatomy of the spine to automatically locate and track tumors, making radiosurgery more precise and less invasive.

 

- Synchrony® Respiratory Tracking System – Continuously synchronizes beam delivery to the motion of the tumor, allowing clinicians to significantly reduce margins while eliminating the need for gating or breath-holding techniques.

 

- Xsight® Lung Tracking System – Directly tracks the movement of lung tumors without fiducials while maintaining precision, reliability and self-adjusting repeatability.

 

 

- Monte Carlo Dose Calculation – Often considered the gold standard when treating lung tumors, the CyberKnife System’s Monte Carlo Dose Calculation produces results in minutes compared to what commonly requires hours or days with other systems.

 

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
