The Anadolu Medical Center Radiation Oncology team is very experienced in terms of radiosurgery.
It is one of the major Cyberknife M6 training centers, and recently signed a contract to be a Center of Excellence for the Accuray team. Cyberknife is the most prominent technology in cancer treatment. New generation. Cyberknife M6 is a more efficient device, ensuring patient comfort and easy application compared with older systems.
SENSITIVE ROBOTIC STRUCTURE
Cyberknife M6 uses a considerably sensitive robotic technology to treat tumours in any region of the body. The linear accelerator of radiation is placed on the robot that can act in six different axes. For this reason, perfect dose distributions can be achieved by delivering radiation from many various angles in tumours localised particularly close to critical organs.
IMAGE GUIDED THERAPY
In Cyberknife M6 system, image is monitored with the assistance of a computer and radiation is delivered to the intended regions with a high degree of sensitivity. During treatment, even the smallest of patient activities that may lower the accuracy and sensitivity of the on-going sessions are detected by the system and corrected. Therefore, particularly in cranial applications, patient can be easily treated with simple plastic mask set-ups as rigid frame systems are not necessary.
One of the most crucial aspects of Cyberknife M6 system is its follow-up of respiration. Tumours localised particularly in thorax and abdomen (e.g. lung, liver, pancreas, adrenal glands, etc.) act according to respiration. Cyberknife M6 monitors outer chest movement of the patient and internal tumour movements correlated with it by infrared camera. Therefore, the robot copies the respiration of the patient and traces the tumour during treatment.
SHORT TREATMENT PERIOD
The major advantage of Cyberknife M6 compared to other radiation surgery treatment platforms is the short time of treatment. The average duration of each session depends on the treated area, the closeness of the target to the critical structures and the total dose needed, but it varies from 15 to 30 minutes. For comparison, the older system's treatment session takes 30-90 minutes. Total treatment period is usually one week. It is very beneficial for patients who live abroad, because they can get the treatment and go home in a short period.
