CyberKnife Radiosurgery for Lung Cancer Sees Increased Interest and Continued Rapid Growth
Date:3/2/2009

as a tool available to the thoracic surgeon while also emphasizing the critical role surgeons play in the CyberKnife treatment process.

Jack A. Roth, M.D., Professor of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery and Johnson Distinguished Chair at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center and others discussed the potential of CyberKnife radiosurgery, and in particular, the recently launched randomized, worldwide multicenter study of CyberKnife versus surgery for operable lung cancer. Currently the standard of care for early stage lung cancer patients is surgical removal of the tumor through a procedure known as lobectomy. Such procedures not only require considerable patient recovery and associated risks of infection and bleeding, they're also resource and cost intensive for providers and payors. While the CyberKnife System is currently accepted as a non-invasive treatment option for inoperable patients, this study is designed to provide evidence that may revolutionize the way operable early stage lung cancer is treated worldwide.

All of these highlights from the meeting are clear indications that physicians and patients are increasingly seeing the impact and value of CyberKnife radiosurgery in the treatment of lung 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.
