The method of treatment of tumors of any localization “CyberKnife is an up-to-date radiation therapy accelerator complex which allows to affect pathological lesions (malignant tumors and their metastases, benign tumors, anatomic defects of vascular system, i.e. arterial-venous malformations etc.).
PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
The apparatus is controlled by a powerful computer system, which allows focusing radiation beam in any part of human body with microscopic precision. Thanks to the modern software the system makes it possible to bring the necessary doses of radiation to the pathological lesions without damaging the surrounding healthy tissues and vital organs, even at the distance of 1 mm from the target.
WHAT DISEASES CAN BE TREATED WITH CYBERKNIFE?
This method applies to both benign and malignant tumors of any localization.
In some cases, simultaneous irradiation of several lesions is possible.
Cyberknife is effectively used in the treatment of
primary and recurrent brain tumors;
brain metastases of various origins;
primary spinal cord tumors
metastases in the spinal cord;
primary and recurrent tumors of the nasopharynx, oral cavity, paranasal sinuses;
tumors of the orbit
carotid sinus tumor;
localized tumors of the lung;
metastases to the lungs;
liver metastases of various origins;
localized prostate cancer;
localized renal cell carcinoma;
tumors of the retroperitoneal space;
tumors of female genitals.
