Along with the enthusiasm around CyberKnife extracranial treatment results, the System remains a widely accepted tool in the treatment of brain tumors. A data comparison of patients with acoustic tumors, treated by either CyberKnife or Gamma Knife radiosurgery demonstrated superior hearing preservation in the patients treated with the CyberKnife System.
"This year's CyberKnife Users' meeting featured clinical data that continue to support the growing usage of CyberKnife technology not only in cancer care, but also the treatment of pain disorders and psychological illnesses," said Eric P. Lindquist, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Accuray Incorporated. "The meeting provided a forum for data sharing amongst some of the biggest leaders in the medical field, in an effort to provide the most safe, effective and comfortable care for patients."
Emerging CyberKnife treatment applications highlighted at the meeting demonstrated promising results treating patients with breast cancer, bone cancer, kidney cancer and various pain syndromes. Centers continue to explore these applications in the hopes of providing less invasive treatment options to their patients.
About the CyberKnife(R) Robotic Radiosurgery System
The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System is the world's only robotic
radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body non-
invasively. Using continual image guidance technology and computer
controlled robotic mobility, the CyberKnife System automatically tracks,
detects and corrects for tumor and patient movement in real-time throughout
the treatment. T
