CyberKnife® Radiosurgery

Overview

CyberKnife M6 Robotic Stereotactic Radiosurgery at Spokane CyberKnife and Radiation Oncology Center is technology that is changing cancer treatments.

What Is CyberKnife Radiosurgery?

Spokane CyberKnife and Radiation Oncology Center’s CyberKnife System is the first and only dedicated non-surgical and robotic radiation treatment system for tumors throughout the body. It is designed to deliver a very precise type of external radiation treatment known as Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT). It is the only radiation therapy technology that automatically tracks tumor motion and adjusts the treatment beam as natural motion in the patient is detected.

The CyberKnife System is extraordinarily precise, enabling our clinicians to deliver individualized treatment with sub-millimeter accuracy through the use of continual image guidance and robotic mobility. As a result, the radiation is targeted to the tumor only, minimizing exposure of healthy tissue.

Using the CyberKnife System, our radiation oncologists can precisely maximize dosages in one to five treatment sessions, minimize side effects, and maximize patient comfort during treatment.

CyberKnife M6 – Highlights

The CyberKnife Robotic Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) also called Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) System is a non-invasive alternative to surgery for both cancer treatment and non-cancer treatment of tumors anywhere in the body.

The CyberKnife System is not a surgical procedure. In fact, there are no cutting, anesthesia, or needles involved. Instead, the CyberKnife System delivers very high doses of stereotactic radiation directly to the tumor, sparing healthy tissue, with surgical accuracy, reducing and eliminating side effects.

The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1999 to treat tumors in the head and base of the skull and in 2001 to treat tumors anywhere in the body.

Recognized worldwide as an innovative and successful cancer treatment, we are proud to be able to provide this treatment at your local CyberKnife Spokane cancer center. Since 1998, patients all over the world have been treated with the CyberKnife stereotactic radiosurgery system. With CyberKnife systems operating worldwide, it has become the leading radiosurgery system capable of delivering both intracranial and extra-cranial treatments of tumors anywhere in the body. FDA-approved and reimbursable by Medicare and most insurance carriers, CyberKnife is an accessible treatment for your patients.
