No pain, No bleeding, 4-Dimensional Robotic CyberKnife Radiosurgery


Inha University Hospital is proud to be the first hospital in South Korea to install 4th generation and 4-dimensional Robotic CyberKnife Radiosurgery system for the treatment of various cancers and benign lesions in the body and central nervous system, many of which have been diagnosed as inoperable, unresectable and oligo-metastatic disease. 

CyberKnife radiosurgery system delivers hundreds of finely collimated radiation beam to the tumor and effectively eradicated tumor cells without pain, bleeding, and anesthesia. With Synchrony system installation, patients no longer have to hold their breath during a procedure because it simultaneously tracks both the movement of the tumor and breathing patterns of the patient and treatment complications are reduced. Furthermore, 4-dimensional planning system can provide more precise calculation of region of interest and normal organ radiation dose. The CyberKnife, a robotic radiosurgery system, has many advantages such as no recovery time, simple outpatient treatment process, extremely accurate radiation targeting, higher doses of radiation, minimal damage to healthy tissue, and immediate resumption of normal daily activities, compared to Gammaknife radiosurgery as well as conventional radiation therapy such as tomotherapy and image guided radiation therapy. It allows physicians to provide a precise, targeted, painless therapy alternative to open surgery and also a treatment option for tumors that are otherwise untreatable. Cyber Knife will give patients new hope for the treatment of tumors and untreatable lesions with previous technology.~
