Cyberknife robotic radiation treatment

Cyberknife robotic radiation treatment - Overview

One of the most advanced forms of radiosurgery, the CyberKnife System is a non-invasive treatment for cancerous and non-cancerous tumours and other disorders where radiation therapy is indicated.

This non-invasive treatment provides high doses of precisely targeted radiation to the body's tumours or lesions.

This treatment is used to treat disorders in the prostate, lung, brain, spine, head and neck, liver, pancreas, and kidney, and can be used as a substitute for surgery or individuals with incurable or surgically complicated tumours.

Cyberknife robotic radiation treatment - Symptoms

All patients coping with deadly brain tumours will benefit greatly from the invention of the Cyberknife.

Cyberknife robotic radiation treatment - Pre-Procedure

The doctor will do an examination based on the patient's individual needs before executing a cyberknife robotic radiation.

Radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and surgeons, as well as medical physicists, radiation technologists, and nurses, form a team to develop the patient's treatment plan.

The tumour's size, shape, and location are then determined using an MRI, CT, or CT/PET scan.

Depending on the type and location of the tumour, fiducials (tiny golden markers) will be inserted to pinpoint its exact location.

Cyberknife robotic radiation treatment - During Procedure

The patient is placed on the table in the first step of the operation, and the robot moves around carefully to deliver radiation to the desired area.

At the same time, the VSI system scans the part of the tumour that is being treated using an X-ray to provide real-time location and images.

This improves the precision and accuracy of the treatment being delivered. Depending on the intensity and location of the tumour, this may be repeated 1 to 5 times.

Each session could take up to an hour.

Cyber knife robotic radiation treatment - Post-Procedure

  • The majority of patients do not require any form of surveillance after a cyberknife robotic radiation treatment.
  • This is a highly likely treatment with no known side effects for patients (although there may be some which vary with the severity and location of the tumor).
  • To avoid any risks, patients are recommended to get in touch with their doctors regularly.

Cyberknife robotic radiation treatment - Risk & Complications

There are no known hazards associated with this medication.

The following are some of the most common side effects:

  • Short-term side effects
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
