CyberKnife - VSI robotic radiosurgery system

Omega Hospitals was the first to introduce the CyberKnife VSI robotic radiosurgery system in two Telugu states, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

CyberKnife is a groundbreaking technology transforming radiation treatment by offering a precise, painless, and non-invasive alternative to traditional open surgery. This state-of-the-art treatment method utilises highly advanced robotic technology to deliver radiation beams that can be sculpted to small, complex-shaped tumours near essential body organs, such as the sensory nerves that control hearing and vision.

The CyberKnife treatment system utilises a robotic radiosurgery approach that does not involve any surgical incisions. This innovative treatment option can be a possible non-invasive alternative for patients who are dealing with either cancerous or noncancerous tumours.

CyberKnife radiosurgery has given countless patients new hope and a chance to receive treatment with minimal side effects and faster recovery time. The revolutionary CyberKnife technology has genuinely changed the cancer treatment landscape, offering a safer and more effective treatment option for patients worldwide.

The CyberKnife VSI Robotic Radiosurgery System's salient features and attributes comprise:

  • Robotic Accuracy:

    The CyberKnife VSI system is a highly advanced medical tool that helps doctors treat cancer precisely and accurately. Its unique robotic arm can move in many ways, allowing doctors to target tumours from many angles. So that they can deliver radiation to the tumour while avoiding damage to healthy surrounding tissues.

    The system is very flexible and can make tiny real-time adjustments to provide the treatment exactly where it needs to go, which makes it an effective tool in the battle against cancer.

  • Real-Time Imaging:

    The CyberKnife VSI system is an advanced medical technology that utilises state-of-the-art imaging techniques like X-ray cameras and CT scans. These imaging technologies are used in real-time to continuously monitor and track the tumours and patients' position and movement.

    Dynamic tracking enables the system to ensure the radiation beams are always precisely aligned with the target, even if the patient moves or breathes during treatment, thus reducing the possibility of damage to the healthy tissues surrounding the tumour.

  • Non-Invasive Procedure:

    The CyberKnife VSI system offers a host of advantages to patients, including the ability to receive non-invasive treatment. This feature prevents patients from undergoing surgery or experiencing surgical incisions. Instead, the system delivers radiation therapy externally, making it a far less traumatic and more comfortable option for many individuals.

    The advanced technology of CyberKnife has completely changed the way cancer is treated, giving patients a more convenient and safe alternative to traditional surgical procedures.

  • Personalised Therapy Schedules:

    Cancer treatments have come a long way, and doctors can now create highly personalised treatment strategies for each patient, considering various factors such as the shape, size, location, and characteristics of the tumour.

    By tailoring the treatment to the patient's needs, doctors can maximise the therapeutic effect while minimising the risk to healthy tissues. This approach allows for a more effective and targeted treatment that greatly improves the chances of recovery.

  • Versatility:

    The CyberKnife VSI system is a highly advanced medical technology that can effectively treat various conditions, whether it's cancerous tumours in the brain, lung, prostate, liver, or pancreas, benign tumours like acoustic neuromas and meningiomas, functional disorders such as trigeminal neuralgia, or vascular abnormalities including arteriovenous malformations.

    The CyberKnife VSI system can provide a precise, accurate, and safe treatment solution for patients suffering from these conditions.

  • Reduced Side Effects:

    The CyberKnife VSI system is known for its remarkable precision in delivering radiation therapy. This level of accuracy is essential in reducing radiation exposure to nearby healthy tissues to decrease the risk of radiotherapy side effects.

    Limiting the impact on healthy cells makes patients less likely to experience fatigue, skin irritation, or damage to nearby organs, making the treatment less uncomfortable and more effective.

  • Reduced Duration of Treatment:

    The CyberKnife VSI system is a modern way of treating cancer with radiation therapy, which is faster and more effective than traditional methods. Instead of going through multiple sessions over several weeks, this procedure can be completed in one to five sessions as per the patient's needs.

    It is excellent news for patients because it means less time spent on treatment while still getting the best results possible.

  • Outpatient Procedure:

    The CyberKnife VSI treatment is a highly advanced, non-invasive surgical technique that can be performed on an outpatient basis, which means that patients need not require hospitalisation.

    It offers greater convenience and reduces the disruption to their daily routine, allowing them to resume their normal activities soon after the treatment.

The integration of PET and MRI in a digital PET-MRI scan offers several key advantages, which are as follows:

  • 1. Short duration of treatment
  • 2. Very minimal side effects
  • 3. Delivers precise treatment
  • 4. Alternative to surgery that is convenient & non-invasive
