The CyberKnife®

The CyberKnife® Stereotactic radiosurgery has emerged as an accepted treatment for many types of intracranial tumors. Based on the understanding of the limitations of prior radiosurgical systems, image-guided robotic radiosurgery was developed to overcome many of these restrictions. The CyberKnife® is a commercially available frameless image-guided radiosurgical system that provides state-of-the-art radiosurgery for intracranial tumors, and has also revolutionized the use of radiosurgery to treat tumors in other parts of the body. This review focuses on the current use of the CyberKnife® to treat cranial and spinal tumors. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Cancer Springer Journals

Abstract

Stereotactic radiosurgery has emerged as an accepted treatment for many types of intracranial tumors. Based on the understanding of the limitations of prior radiosurgical systems, image-guided robotic radiosurgery was developed to overcome many of these restrictions. The CyberKnife® is a commercially available frameless image-guided radiosurgical system that provides state-of-the-art radiosurgery for intracranial tumors, and has also revolutionized the use of radiosurgery to treat tumors in other parts of the body. This review focuses on the current use of the CyberKnife® to treat cranial and spinal tumors.
