The CyberKnife® System functions differently than conventional radiosurgery systems at every stage of the clinical process.
The CyberKnife® System's treatment planning capabilities are designed to support the clinician in determining the optimal plan for each patient.
The tools available to clinicians include some of the most advanced treatment planning technologies available today. The MultiPlan® Treatment Planning System and the InView® Image Fusion and Contouring Station combine to enable easy and quick design of dose optimization programs as well as sophisticated and convenient image fusion and contouring.
These tools enable clinicians to specially design the concentration of beams to the tumor, optimizing tumor ablation. Forward and inverse treatment planning are also options, allowing for dose optimization for individual patients based on the location of the tumor, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
