What is the CyberKnife® System?

CyberKnife® – Confidence in Motion

The premier solution for full-body robotic radiosurgery

The CyberKnife® System is an image-guided linear accelerator mounted on a robotic arm that 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 tracks tumor motion and automatically adjusts the treatment beam as natural prostate motion is detected.

The CyberKnife System is highly precise, enabling 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 prostate, minimizing exposure of healthy tissue.

Using the CyberKnife System, physicians can precisely maximize dose in four to five treatment sessions, minimize side effects, and maximize patient comfort during treatment.
