The compact X-band linear accelerator emits circular beams with secondary collimation ranging from 5 mm to 60 mm. This compact lightweight system allows for precisely delivered pencil-shaped beams of radiation in almost any direction, providing superior conformality when treating patients.
The robotic manipulator used by the CyberKnife® System is made by Kuka™, one of the leading robot manufactures in the world. This high-precision robot is capable of delivering a repeatability accuracy of less than 0.2 mm.
The low-energy x-ray sources generate two perpendicular, oblique diagnostic x-rays that determine the location of bony landmarks or implanted radiopaque markers throughout the entire treatment.
The high-resolution image detectors capture x-ray images and generate digital images of the anatomy. These images which are taken throughout the treatment are compared to the digitally reconstructed radiographs (DRRs) generated from the CT scans used for treatment planning. The imaging system then determines the patient’s position and sends a command to the robotic manipulator to correct for movement.
The AXUM™ Automatic Patient Positioning System automatically and accurately aligns patients in one simple step, significantly reducing patient setup times and increasing patient throughput.
The Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System is the first technology in the world capable of delivering radiosurgery to targets that move with respiration. The CyberKnife® System synchronizes the Robotic Delivery System to the motion of the tumor so margins of less than a millimeter are needed in order to compensate for respiratory motions.
CyRIS™ Treatment Planning includes fast, multi-modality image fusion with simplified contouring. Supports forward and inverse planning methods and achieves desired plan results quickly andefficiently. Streamlines overall planning process to maximize the capabilities of CyberKnife® System.
With CyRIS InView, physicians are able to perform fusion, contouring and dose review in the comfort of their own office or other remote location.
