UHO Utilizes CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System

University Hospital of Ostrava has procured Accuray’s CyberKnife robotic radiosurgery system and has started utilizing it for cancer treatment.

CyberKnife Robot

CyberKnife adopts a non-invasive approach for treating cancer found in any part of the body and so far around 100,000 CyberKnife-assisted surgeries have been performed globally. It helps the surgeons to offer precise doses of radiation, corresponding to the shape of the tumor mass. It can also trace, identify and adjust the movements of both the patient and the tumor mass instantaneously throughout the procedure. With the help of computer-guided mobility and image guidance technology, it can determine the position and size of the tumors. It also identifies the nearness of the tumor to major organs or tissues.

It was reported that every year around 4,500 cancer victims with all categories of malevolent tumors receive treatment by means of non-surgical techniques at UHO.
