Pet-CT Technology with the Cyberknife


>>Construction to house the only CyberKnife in the region is also underway.
The robotic CyberKnife treats difficult tumors and can automatically adjust the patent's movement.
"For instance if you had a brain tumor that was near the optic nerve and you didn't want to injure it with radiation therapy because it's right next to the brain tumor this would allow you to give it so precisely 3 dimensional stereotactically. So that's the beauty. it's magic."
The new technology is part of a 6 million dollars is upgrades for patients at the Lewis Cancer Pavilion.
