Patient was unwilling to undergo a second thoracotomy, and instead chose to receive CyberKnife® treatment of the lesion with concurrent chemotherapy.
A PROVEN STEREOTACTIC RADIOSURGERY PLATFORM. QUALITY OUTCOMES.
CyberKnife’s precise delivery allows the expansion of stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy treatments to indications not possible to treat on any other radiation therapy machine.
The CyberKnife System provided a convenient and minimally invasive treatment option for this patient with recurrent ovarian carcinoma who had failed previous surgery and chemotherapy.
Radiosurgery is a practical alternative for both boost therapy after external beam radiotherapy and salvage therapy in patients with recurrent NPC.
The CyberKnife System can deliver complex treatment plans to multiple lesions while minimizing irradiation to the surrounding healthy tissue, thereby decreasing the risk of complications.
