CyberKnife Exceeds Gamma Knife non-invasive procedure to treat tumors

An article mentioning Accuray's CyberKnife:

>>In 2001 a new device called CyberKnife was approved by the FDA to treat tumors anywhere in the body. This new device provides a non-invasive procedure to treat tumors that are in-operable by traditional open-surgery. Unlike Gamma Knife, CyberKnife does not require the use of stereotactic gear because of its robotic arm that positions itself according to the patient’s placement. It also re-corrects itself according to the patient’s movements during the procedure. .... Individually, the rays are very weak but when the rays gather at the targeted point, they are very powerful and yet the device still manages to leave the surrounding healthy tissue undamaged. The recovery time with Cyber Knife is very short just as it is with Gamma Knife.

There is a link to a blog:
