Oklahoma CyberKnife Center Cuts Treatment Time in Half With Next Generation CyberKnife Technology
Date:9/22/2008

erKnife incorporates a number of sophisticated technologies to achieve a considerable reduction in treatment times, including:

-- Sequential Optimization Planning Tool -- enables treatment plans to be developed in as little as 15 minutes.

-- 800 Monitor Unit/Minute Linear Accelerator -- delivers higher doses of radiation to tumors, resulting in treatment times that are up to 30 percent faster than previous systems.

-- Iris(TM) Variable Aperture Collimator -- enables very conformal, multi-collimator treatments to be rapidly delivered to even the most complex targets.

-- Optimized Path Traversal -- supports more efficient robotic motion by allowing the CyberKnife System to skip over nodes where radiation dose is not being delivered.

"Even after just two months, it is clear that the improvements made to the CyberKnife System will enable us to increase the number of patients we expect to treat at our Oklahoma facility," said Greg Spurlock, chief operating officer of US Radiosurgery. "The next generation CyberKnife System is making such a significant, positive impact on our business model and the efficacy of our Oklahoma facility that we are considering upgrading the CyberKnife Systems at some of our busiest centers in order to better meet demand."

The average CyberKnife treatment is completed in 3 outpatient visits. Compared to the 40 outpatient visits commonplace with conventional radiation therapy, the next generation CyberKnife System can significantly ease the burden on both patients and providers by offering a nearly 60 percent reduction in total treatment time.

In addition to Oklahoma CyberKnife, which opened in July 2008, US Radiosurgery is installing another next generation CyberKnife System in a new Reno, Nev., facility that is expected to open within the next month.
