State-Of-The-Art Radiation Therapy For Pancreatic Cancer
Traditionally, oncologists would rely on surgery or chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer treatment – but Pasadena CyberKnife offers a brand new solution! Rather than invasive surgical methods, our CyberKnife system uses powerful stereotactic radiosurgery techniques, delivering high-dose radiation directly to the site of the tumor with sub-millimeter accuracy. CyberKnife lets our team treat pancreatic cancer with an outpatient procedure that minimally impacts your day-to-day routine and provides a high success rate.
Pasadena CyberKnife brings together some of the most advanced stereotactic radiosurgery technology on the planet to create one of the most advanced cancer treatment methods out there. Thanks to its use of the Synchrony® Respiratory Tracking System, CyberKnife is the only radiotherapy system today capable of tracking and compensating for a tumor’s movement in real time.
Pasadena CyberKnife offers a variety of benefits for pancreatic cancer treatment, including:
- Sub-millimeter accuracy of radiation delivery, providing maximum dosage with minimal exposure to surrounding cells and tissues.
- Real-time imaging, tracking, and adjustment for tumor motion to ensure accurate radiation delivery.
- Completely non-invasive and non-surgical, providing minimal side effects and improved recovery time.
- Treatment on outpatient basis which requires no hospital stay and lets the patient continue with their daily routine after treatment.
- Radiation delivered in 1 to 5 treatment sessions over the course of a week.
The CyberKnife Pancreatic Cancer Treatment Process
Because of regular, involuntary functions like breathing and movement of gas through the body, you cancerous tumors can move constantly. To deal with these location shifts, many radiosurgery systems require the use of braces and uncomfortable immobility devices to stabilize the tumor – and even then, accurate delivery is never guaranteed.
CyberKnife completely does away with the need for braces and immobility devices! Using advanced imaging and motion tracking software, CyberKnife is able to measure the tumor’s movement and account for it in real time, ensuring continuous, accurate radiation delivery throughout the entire treatment session. This tracking capability means the patient never needs to wear a brace or immobility device – all you have to do is lie comfortably while CyberKnife delivers treatment.
Treatment is completed on an outpatient basis, and patients are free to go about their lives as normal following a treatment session. The sessions last about an hour, and most patients complete their recommended dose of radiation in 1 to 5 sessions over the course of a week.
