Okayama Kyokuto Hospital install the pioneering
device "The Cyberknife". - the third one in Japan
The cyberknife is Stereotactic Radiosurgery robot that allows for precise application of highly focused beams of radiation for destroying solid cancers. Conventional stereotactic radiosurgery is done with a variety of sources of high energy radiation; linear accelerators, cobalt isotopes, and heavy particle accelerators. Each of these approaches suffers from one or more disadvantages. In 1992, a unique device, the Cyberknife is invented by Dr. John. Adlar at Stanford University.
From 1994, the Cyberknife has been installed and being used to treat patients. Unlike other stereotactic radiosurgery products, the Cyberknife (frameless stereotactic radiosurgery) confirms precisely the location of the lesion in relation to the radiation beam throughout the procedure. There is another radiosurgery system, called Gamma Knife, for treating brain tumors. With Gamma Knife, metal helmet should be positioned to secure patient's head so it can't avoid hurting his/her skull. The Cyberknife does not need flame placement though. It is a safe, non-invasive, technologically advanced device and many conditions can be treated with little or no pain.
