Course descriptions

Service Training for the CyberKnife System.
Audience: Core Team
Goal: This 4.5-day technical training course provides an introduction to the latest generation CyberKnife® System.
Details: Concepts and theory are the primary focus, with some hands-on exercises related to subsystems, potential calibration activities and components. The intended audience for this course is either technical or non-technical students seeking to expand their CyberKnife® knowledge beyond cursory topics.

Physician Course
Days 1 through 4: Entire course
Audience: Physicians who have primary roles in evaluating and approving treatment plans and confirming patient setup and alignment for all clinical applications.
Goal: Physicians will develop an understanding of full body radiosurgery including patient selection and clinical applications. This course emphasizes the role of the Physician in decisions involving treatment planning and delivery.
Details: The course curriculum blends instruction on concepts of treatment planning and delivery with hands-on labs. It includes instruction on CNS and extracranial treatments, such as prostate and lung applications. Physicians interested only in intracranial and spine applications may elect to attend only the CNS module conducted on Day 1 and Day 2.

This course meets core curriculum required for New System Implementation.

CNS Radiosurgery Module
Days 1 and 2 of the 4-day course
Audience: Physicians who treat central nervous system targets using the CyberKnife System.
Goal: Attendees will develop an understanding of treatment plan evaluation and approval, as well as confirmation of patient setup and alignment for intracranial and spine applications. This course emphasizes the role of the Physician in decisions involving treatment planning and delivery.
Details: The course curriculum blends instruction on concepts of treatment planning and delivery with hands-on labs.

This course is not part of the core curriculum requirements for New System Implementation.

Physics Essentials (QA and Commissioning) Course
Audience: Medical Physicists responsible for performing commissioning and quality assurance (QA) tasks on the CyberKnife System.
Goal: This course provides an overview of clinical operation with in-depth instruction on acceptance test procedures (ATP), commissioning procedures and routine QA tools and practices.
Details: The course curriculum blends conceptual instruction with hands-on exercises to prepare Physicists for active involvement in the ATP as well as to perform routine QA tests. This course includes an introduction to treatment planning and hands-on practice with the CyberKnife System. Completion of the course prepares the Physicist to perform the necessary commissioning and testing to ensure the system is ready for clinical use. Physicists who create clinical treatment plans are recommended to enroll in a dedicated CyberKnife Treatment Planning course.
