CyberKnife

CyberKnife

Description

CyberKnife is a robotic device to perform radiosurgery with precise radiation delivery to the organs affected with benign and malignant tumors.

Features

This method allows destroying tumors without incisions and pain; it is frequently used as an alternative to surgery when neoplasms are hard to reach or cannot be operated. The radiation is directed accurately, so it does not affect healthy tissues or organs. Treatment with CyberKnife is an outpatient procedure: just after a session (it lasts about 30-90 minutes), a patient can return home and their everyday activities.

Among 133 of patients with brain metastases, 90% of them with such symptoms as headaches or seizures experience improvement and stabilizing of their conditions after CyberKnife sessions. Another study of 333 patients showed that 85% of them take over the tumor growth: it decreases or stops its development. 92% of people with inoperative tumors observe the reduction of symptoms caused by a lesion.

Gamma Knife

Gamma Knife

Description

Gamma Knife is a radiosurgery device to manage radiation therapy. It uses 192 radiation beams to precisely target brain tumors. Each beam goes separately through the healthy brain tissues, and then they meet together in the target delivering there a high radiation dose.

Features

The procedure is painless, performed without incisions and anesthesia. It is an alternative to traditional surgery for hard-to-reach or inoperable tumors. A GammaKnife session does not require admission; a patient can go back home and return to allowed activities just after a procedure.

Proton Therapy

Proton Therapy

Description

Proton therapy is a type of radiation therapy affecting tumors with protons, not X-rays. The X-rays damage healthy tissues on their way to a tumor that limits their usage. In the case with proton therapy, protons precisely hit a neoplasm, while healthy tissues remain unaffected that allow using stronger doses of irradiation to hit tumors located near vital organs. During a session, a patient lays on the table and a machine rotates producing proton beams to hit a tumor.

Features

This is an outpatient procedure; a person can leave a hospital just after a session is over. Usually, the whole treatment cycle takes 30 minutes to complete. It usually continues 5 times a week for several weeks. The radiation dose may change over the treatment. No specific rehab is needed. Such side effects as fatigue, headache, hair loss that can develop over time.

Result for Brain tumor

20 patients with low-grade gliomas underwent proton therapy. Clinicians supervised patients after the treatment for 5.1 years. All participants tolerated the therapy well: intellectual functioning, vision, attention, working memory remained normal. A 3-year disease-free progression was observed in 85% of cases. 40% survived 5 years without disease progression.
