What kind of tumor disease can be treated with the CyberKnife®?
Die CyberKnife®-Behandlung eignet sich prinzipiell für alle Tumorerkrankungen, bei denen der Tumor oder Resttumor ein umschriebenes, nur lokal begrenztes Problem darstellt.
The treatment with the CyberKnife® suits basically to all tumor diseases in which the tumor or the residual tumor presents a circumscribed or just locally limited problem. The CyberKnife® can be used if a removal with a scalpel is not possible or not wanted by the patient. The CyberKnife® can be the best treatment for patients, who have a high risk resulting in the location of the tumor, other special circumstances, or if a surgical removal would not be recommended.
Furthermore the CyberKnife®-radiosurgery can be used to treat vascular malformations like angioma or in painsyndromes such as the trigeminal neuralgia.
