5 Yr. Study: CyberKnife VSI Treatment Success
A multi-center CyberKnife VSI study, published in the January 10, 2011 issue of Radiation Oncology, found that 93 percent of prostate cancer patients had no recurrence of their cancer at a median follow-up of five years, which compares favorably to results obtained with other treatment options, including surgery and conventional radiation therapy. The study concluded that Cyberknife radiosurgery can achieve high rates of disease control while sparing critical structures, thereby minimizing undesirable side effects typically associated with prostate cancer treatments and preserving patients’ quality of life.
What is Cyberknife VSI and How Can it Help Treat Prostate Cancer?
CyberKnife VSI's robotic radiosurgery system is the latest non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of prostate tumors, as well as tumors throughout the body. The Cyberknife VSI can deliver extremely precise doses of radiation to tumors, while sparing healthy surrounding tissue and structures. CyberKnife VSI treatment offers prostate cancer patients the option to avoid surgery and its potential for greater complications, while obtaining very similar treatment outcomes. The Cyberknife VSI is the most sophisticated non-invasive radiation treatment available, as other radiosurgery systems cannot treat tumors with the same level of accuracy and are more invasive. The advantage that Colorado CyberKnife VSI offers patients is that we are one of a few facilities in the world to offer the latest non-invasive radiation treatment, with the next-generation Cyberknife VSI unit, which brings revolutionary benefits. We also boast the region’s leading radiosurgery doctors.
- Radiosurgical treatment accuracy is assured with the combination of continual image guidance and robotic mobility.
- Corrections due to patient and organ motion are automated in the treatment deliver workflow eliminating the need to stop the treatment to manually make corrections.
- The non-coplanar treatment capability of the CyberKnife VSI System results in treatment plans with the superior conformality and exceptional normal tissue sparing.
