CyberKnife Treatment for Lung Cancer

Remarkable Lung Cancer Treatment from the Region's Most Experienced Team

Diagnosing lung cancer at an early stage can be difficult. Only about 15% of lung cancers are found at an early stage and in many cases the cancer can be difficult to reach. As a result, watchful waiting and invasive surgical procedures are often required before a diagnosis can be made, sometimes presenting higher complications.

CyberKnife is a truly remarkable, non-invasive approach to treating lung cancer and other malignant or benign tumors – even tumors that were previously inoperable.

The XSight Lung Tracking System

  • Provides a treatment alternative for medically inoperable patients
  • Intelligently tracks, detects and corrects for tumor movement with continual image guidance throughout the treatment
  • Dynamically tracks targets that move with respiration
  • Minimizes irradiation of healthy tissue and critical structures
  • Allows patients to breathe normally – no complex gating or painful breath-holding techniques

Breathe Easier with SuperDimension

SuperDimension works similarly to a GPS (Global Positioning System) creating a three-dimensional "roadmap" of your lungs from your CT-Scan, that enables your doctor to steer a unique set of inReach catheters through the lungs to reach the targeted tumor in a minimally-invasive manner. Couple this ability to diagnose the cancer at an earlier stage with the ability of the CyberKnife System to treat the lung cancer at an earlier stage and you have a remarkable lung cancer treatment option as well as new hope for lung cancer patients.
