$ISR “great question guys. Cyber Knife is a form of stereotactic Radiosurgery (like Gamma Knife) which delivers very focused, pinpoint radiation externally and is not designed to cover a large area of tissue. We are using the Gamma Tiles as an adjunct to surgical resection. This allows for direct radiation to the tumor bed immediately, as most external beam radiation is done several weeks after surgery to allow time for the wound to heal. Additionally, this avoids the risks of wound or skin breakdown or delivery or radiation to normal tissues which can both be a problem with EBRT. The tiles will kill any remaining tumor cells in the surrounding cavity over the next few weeks and have been shown to increase the time to progression as well as overall survival. A true game changer.”
