The presentation is to be made by the CyberKnife Center of Miami's Chief of Medical Physics, James Hevezi, PhD., FACR/FAAPM, and will encompass the definitive treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia with the CyberKnife image guided robotic radiosurgery system. The presentation information for neurosurgical patient treatment includes:

  • CyberKnife engages and utilizes 3D; which is integral to treatment delivery system
  • Planning based on Computed Tomography of 3D patient structures
  • For intracranial targets, MRI data set is fused to CT baseline data set
  • System plans & treats from 100 beam stopping points around patient
  • Since it is a frameless system, can split dose plan & delivery in multiples

The CyberKnife can perform this surgery with:

* No incision

* No blood

* No anesthesia

* No pain

* No recovery or rehabilitation time

Incorporating a compact, lightweight linear accelerator mounted on a robotic arm, the CyberKnife provides the physician unparalleled flexibility in targeting tumors and lesions.
