CYBERKNIFE® SYSTEM

Technology

The CyberKnife System is an image-guided linear accelerator that was specifically designed to deliver Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). It is the precision of the system, delivered by its robotic arm, and real-time adaptive delivery of the radiation beam to the tumor throughout treatment, that makes such a difference for patients. CyberKnife accuracy is sub-millimetric, which can help significantly reduce the risk of the side effects that too often disrupt the lives of patients during and after treatment

What makes the CyberKnife System unique? It is the only fully robotic radiation delivery system. The robotic design, coupled with real-time imaging, enables the CyberKnife System to deliver ablative doses of radiation directly to the tumor from thousands of beam angles with sub-millimeter precision and accuracy.

Synchrony® Motion Synchronization Technology

The industry-exclusive Synchrony technology enables personalized real-time adaptive delivery of radiation treatment to targets that move with respiration by synchronizing the delivery beam position to the target location precisely and accurately during continuous delivery of a treatment fraction.

Robotic
Arm-Mounted Linear Accelerator

The linear accelerator (LINAC) delivers the high-energy x-ray photons to the tumor.

InCise®
Multi-Leaf Collimator

The collimator shapes the radiation beam and can change its intensity. The CyberKnife System features the first-ever robotic arm-mount multi-leaf collimator (MLC), which uses multiple “leaves” to more rapidly shape the beam and enable the efficient treatment of larger targets with fewer beams.

RoboCouch Patient Positioning System

The RoboCouch is a robotic patient couch capable of positioning patients with sub-millimeter precision and accuracy.
