Adding to this growing body of evidence for CyberKnife prostate SBRT is the completion of patient accrual in an Accuray sponsored, multi-center homogeneous prostate study for low and intermediate risk prostate cancer. The study is led by teams at the Swedish Cancer Center in Seattle and the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and involves 21 centers in the US.  A total of 309 eligible patients have been accrued and are being followed closely to allow precise evaluation of the long term efficacy and toxicity outcomes following CyberKnife prostate SBRT.  

The benefits of CyberKnife SBRT for prostate cancer are well illustrated by the stories of the thousands of patients who have undergone treatment over the last eight years.  Dr. Michael Kendrick, a practicing physician familiar with radiosurgery, was the first patient in the world to undergo CyberKnife prostate SBRT and was treated in 2003 at Stanford.

"After learning about the CyberKnife and drawing on my expertise as a physician, deciding to move forward with CyberKnife prostate SBRT was a no brainer," said Dr. Michael Kendrick, one of the first CyberKnife patients. "CyberKnife's pinpoint accuracy and ability to track and correct for prostate motion was an important factor in my decision. I experienced no side effects, a fast recovery time, and was able to maintain a high quality of life during and following treatment. My PSA level has remained stable proving to me that CyberKnife SBRT was an effective treatment, a choice I have never regretted."

The CyberKnife System is a non-invasive treatment option for prostate cancer that has the ability to deliver targeted and destructive doses of radiation with the highest levels of accuracy enabling treatment of tumors close to critical, healthy structures. The CyberKnife System's unique ability to not only track, but also automatically correct for unpredictable movement of the prostate during treat
