CyberKnife officially unveiled during ribbon cutting

The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University on Friday officially unveiled its newest tool to fight cancer — the CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System.

The medical school's Department of Radiation Oncology held the open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center. The CyberKnife specializes in targeting accuracy, allowing it to deliver radiation treatments with minimal damage to surrounding body tissue.


The center began operating the CyberKnife in February.
