The Cyberknife: a frameless robotic system for radiosurgery.

Author information

  • 1Department of Neurosurgery, Stanford University Medical Center, Calif., USA.

Abstract

The Cyberknife is a unique instrument for performing frameless stereotactic radiosurgery. Rather than using rigid immobilization, the Cyberknife relies on an image-to-image correlation algorithm for target localization. Furthermore, the system utilizes a novel, light-weight, high-energy radiation source. The authors describe the technical specifications of the Cyberknife and summarize the initial clinical experience.
