ABSTRACT:
Cyber Knife System is a radiation therapy device manufactured by Accuray Incorporated. The system is used to deliver radiosurgery for the treatment of benign tumors, malignant tumors and other medical conditions. Despite its name, Cyber Knife treatment is not a surgical procedure. 1In fact, there is no cutting involved. The Cyber Knife System is a non-invasive alternative for delivering radiation with the high level of precision required for stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). Neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists turn to the Cyber Knife System when more invasive techniques are deemed ineffective or too risky.2
