Raising funds for CyberKnife Cancer Radiotherapy Treatment
The use of the robot in the CyberKnife System is vital in delivering radiation beams accurately whilst monitoring patient movement during the treatment. Any change in the position of the patient is detected by the cameras and then the robot adjusts its position to allow re-targeting of the linear accelerator before delivering the radiation beam. Use of the robot ensures that there is no need to manually reposition the patient during treatment as a result of movement, thereby slowing down the treatment process.
