CyberKnife® Always Precise

Clinically proven, CyberKnife® has helped thousands of people around the world.

The CyberKnife® system is able to deliver extremely high doses of radiation with sub-millimetre accuracy in contrast to conventional techniques for kidney cancer.

OVERVIEW

Common Treatment Options

Kidney cancer is the 9th most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia and the 17th most common cause of cancer death. When initiated early, treatment for kidney cancer usually has good results, although approximately 1000 people still die from kidney cancer every year in Australia (Cancer Australia).

Treatment methods depend on the type of kidney cancer, its location and spread of the disease. Surgery is the most accepted treatment for early stage kidney cancer. However, depending on the fitness of the patient and size of tumour, Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) or Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy (SABR) may be recommended.

Conventional radiation treatments typically require delivery of low doses during many sessions over several weeks and require the use of compression or breath hold techniques in an attempt to achieve better accuracy. In contrast, stereotactic radiation treatment using CyberKnife® Systems is able to deliver extremely high doses of radiation with sub-millimetre accuracy.

Our 5D Clinic specialists work closely with your existing medical team to determine whether CyberKnife® treatment is right for you.

ADVANTAGES OF CYBERKNIFE®

The CyberKnife® System is clinically proven to be effective.

To enhance precision, a gold seed (known as a fiducial marker) is first placed inside or adjacent to the tumour, providing a target on which the CyberKnife® robot can lock. During treatment, a synchrony tracking algorithm creates predictive positional adjustments of the robot head in real time to allow for movement of the kidney during breathing. This technique enables the patient to lie comfortably and naturally on the treatment couch without the need for unnecessary immobilisation devices or body frames.

By tracking the tumour in real time using a combination of optical markers, LED cameras and real-time X-rays, the CyberKnife® System can deliver very high doses of radiation to the target, sparing adjacent organs and tissue. This improves treatment outcomes whilst minimising side effects, and decreases treatment time from several weeks to a few days.
