The CyberKnife System is a non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of both cancerous and non-cancerous tumors anywhere in the body, including the head, spine, lung, prostate, liver and pancreas.

The treatment - which delivers high doses of radiation to tumors with extreme accuracy - offers new hope to patients who have inoperable or surgically complex tumors, or who may be looking for a non-surgical option.

To date, more than 100,000 patients have been treated and 244 systems are installed worldwide.
