Cyber Knife Robotic Radiation
Patients with tumours that are being treated with the CyberKnife frequently weren't thought to be candidates for surgery or traditional radiation therapy in the past. The CyberKnife uses real-time x-rays to find the lesion during therapy; after that, the radiation beam is dynamically aligned with the target. Due to the robotic arm's flexibility, it is feasible to treat body parts including the spine and spinal cord that cannot be treated using standard radiosurgery methods.

About Cyber Knife Robotic Radiation
Using high-energy X-ray equipment installed on a robotic arm, CyberKnife precisely focuses radiation beams to destroy cancer cells and stop tumour development without damaging healthy tissue. Radiation beams are delivered with extreme precision using a robotic arm. Due to the robotic arm's flexibility, it is feasible to treat body parts including the spine and spinal cord that cannot be treated using standard radiosurgery methods.
Procedure of Cyber Knife Robotic Radiation
Before the procedure, the patient undergoes imaging tests such as CT scans, MRIs, or PET scans to create a 3D map of the tumor or abnormality.
Treatments are performed on an outpatient basis, with each treatment lasting between 30 to 90 minutes.
Patients may lay comfortably on the operating table without being given any anesthesia as the robotic arm operates without ever coming in contact with them to treat the entire tumor.
Recovery is often immediate, given CyberKife’s low risk of complications and damage to healthy tissue.
