Stereotactic Radiosurgery


The CyberKnife Stereotactic Radiosurgery System (SRS) incorporates recent technological advances in robotics and computerized image recognition to achieve an innovative quantum leap in radiosurery. The CyberKnife mounts a lightweight linear accelerator on an industrial robotic arm that accurately and efficiently delivers radiotherapy while being guided in real time by an advanced computer image tracking technology in a frameless environment. The CyberKnife, which is being adopted worldwide, was developed by Dr. John Adler, Jr., along with his colleagues at Stanford Universigy and Accuray, Inc. It was approved in 2001 by the United States Food and Drug Administration for use in radiotherapy of sesions anywhere in the body. The University of Southern California-Norris Cancer Hospital unit is one of the first United States installations of the newest, second-generation CyberKnife.
