CyberKnife is capable of high-dose radiation for tumors or lesions in especially sensitive areas of the brain and is the only radiosurgery system that doesn’t need an invasive head frame. Radiosurgery with CyberKnife safely delivers high-dose radiation while minimizing exposure to healthy tissue. Ocular and orbital tumors can be difficult to treat due to their close proximity to important structures in the brain, and CyberKnife provides an effective treatment option for these tumors due to the precise nature of the radiation beams it delivers. Ocular and orbital tumors can greatly affect a patient’s quality of life, and radiosurgery with CyberKnife offers a treatment option that can preserve a patient’s vision.
