CyberKnife® for brain cancer

CyberKnife for brain cancer

CyberKnife® provides a non-invasive option for brain cancer patients who are unable to undergo surgery because of the location of the tumor or other factors.

The CyberKnife System’s sophisticated software can pinpoint a brain tumor’s exact location in real time using X-ray images taken during treatment. This allows us to precisely deliver radiation to the tumor while reducing damage to surrounding sensitive brain tissue.

Also, unlike other radiosurgery systems, CyberKnife for brain cancer does not require patients to be fitted with a rigid, invasive head frame. Instead, patients wear a non-invasive, custom-fitted soft mesh mask.
