Hear from Dr. McDonald on how the CyberKnife S7 is unlocking new levels of speed for her practice

Dr. McDonald is a Consultant Clinical Oncologist specializing in the treatment of patients with lung cancer. She has both a private and an NHS practice at The Royal Marsden Hospital in the UK. Dr McDonald’s research aims to improve outcomes by developing individualized approaches to lung radiotherapy through integration of novel functional imaging and targeted biological agents with advanced radiotherapy technologies, including stereotactic/CyberKnife radiotherapy, intensity-modulated and image-guided adaptive radiotherapy.

 

25 Facts About Brain Tumors and Neurological Disorders

This engaging infographic shares 25 interesting facts about brain tumors — from the history of treating different types of functional diseases and lesions, to how the CyberKnife System continues to provide a uniquely effective, non-surgical treatment option for these diseases.

CyberKnife System: Treating Lung Tumors

Treating Lung Tumors with Precision Radiation on the CyberKnife S7 System

Animation demonstrating how the CyberKnife treats lung tumors. The CyberKnife fully integrated image-guidance system continually acquires stereoscopic kV images during treatment, tracks motion and leverages advanced AI to automatically synchronize the treatment beam alignment in real-time. The 6-axis robotic arm aims each treatment beam taking into account tumor motion throughout treatment delivery. All measured displacements are automatically corrected, regardless of how small, maintaining sub-millimeter accuracy.
