What is cyberknife cancer treatment?
'The cyberknife technology is very new. It's taken advances in robotics and advances in computer
controlled technolgies and applied them, from really what was previously manufacturing process,
into being able to use the technique to deliver radiation to cancer patients.'
What is the impact for the patients treatment?
'Most cyberknife treatments are either one treatment or up to three or five treatments and
typically that could be given over the period of a week. Some of those patients that we're treating
with that short treatment on the cyberknife traditionally may of been treated with radiation which
was given day to day, monday to friday for six or seven weeks in the past.'
