About the CyberKnife System
The CyberKnife System marks a new era in cancer treatment. Combining cutting-edge technology from several fields of medicine, CyberKnife provides a nonsurgical, noninvasive option for treating a variety of cancers almost anywhere in the body. The system works by delivering high-energy, high-dose radiation directly to the site of a tumor with sub-millimeter accuracy, attacking cancer cells while minimizing damage to surrounding cells and tissues. And because CyberKnife uses the Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System, it can compensate for tumor movement in real time, removing the need for painful immobility braces.
CyberKnife for Lymphoma Treatment
Lymphoma is slightly different from many other forms of cancers in that lymphoma is a disease of the immune system. While it can be localized in bone marrow or concentrate in certain lymph nodes, lymphoma generally affects lymphocytes – a type of white blood cell that can travel freely throughout the body. This means that it’s usually more difficult treat lymphoma with CyberKnife alone, as the cancer cells aren’t confined to a single tumor.
That said, CyberKnife can often play a role in improving treatment even when it can’t treat the cancer on its own. Often, an oncologist will choose to combine CyberKnife with another treatment like chemotherapy, targeted therapy, or surgery. For lymphoma, your doctor may decide to use targeted therapy as a primary treatment, as this will attack cancer cells anywhere in the body, but supplement the treatment by using CyberKnife to target specific lymph nodes or other areas. It all depends on the specifics of your case and condition.
