"We have successfully treated the first patient using the CyberKnife M6 System with the InCise MLC. The patient, diagnosed with a brain meningioma, was a typical candidate for highly-focused treatment that can be delivered by the CyberKnife," said Dr.
The M6 Series delivers radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy, enabling precise, high-quality dose distributions to be confidently administered to the patient with extreme accuracy over a minimum number of treatments, reducing side effects and preserving patients' quality of life. The system is able to adjust and automatically stay on target in real-time, accounting for patient and tumor motion. CyberKnife is the only robotic radiosurgery system available today which delivers such high precision treatments for intra- and extra-cranial disease sites throughout the body.
"We congratulate Dr. Heron, Dr. Huq and their team on treating the first patient using the CyberKnife M6 System and InCise MLC," said

Important Safety Information: Most side effects of radiotherapy, including radiotherapy delivered with Accuray systems, are mild and temporary, often involving fatigue, nausea, and skin irritation. Side effects can be severe, however, leading to pain, alterations in normal body functions (for example, urinary or salivary function), deterioration of quality of life, permanent injury and even death.
Side effects can occur during or shortly after radiation treatment or in the months and years following radiation. The nature and severity of side effects depend on many factors, including the size and location of the treated tumor, the treatment technique (for example, the radiation dose), the patient's general medical condition, to name a few. For more details about the side effects of your radiation therapy, and if treatment with an Accuray product is right for you, ask your doctor.
