Robotic Radiosurgery Course Yields Record Attendance
Date:5/5/2008

30 prostate cancer patients with CyberKnife radiosurgery demonstrating excellent prostate specific antigen (PSA) response, with only 1 biochemical failure to date in a patient with high risk disease, and few reports of acute toxicity at a mean of 6 months follow-up.

Additionally, experience from Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, Md., highlighted the outcomes of 45 patients with pancreatic cancer whose prior surgery or prior radiation was unsuccessful or who were inoperable and who subsequently were treated with CyberKnife radiosurgery. The median overall survival time from diagnosis was 18.4 months with a local control rate of 91 percent for these patients. These results constitute very promising outcomes, given the often poor prognosis for pancreatic cancer.

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. This enables the CyberKnife System to deliver high-dose radiation with pinpoint precision, which minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissue and eliminates the need for invasive head or body stabilization frames.
