Cyberknife

State-of-the-Art Capabilities

NDCCyberKnife_018Newport Diagnostic Center is proud to offer state-of-the-art CyberKnife® treatments for complex tumors and other conditions of the brain, neck, and spine. CyberKnife is an advanced image-guided stereotactic robotic system for providing precise radiation treatment. Recognizing the impact CyberKnife would have on the treatment of patients with inoperable tumors and lesions, Newport Diagnostic Center made the commitment in 1996 to offer radiosurgery and radiotherapy with the CyberKnife. Newport Diagnostic Center became the second site in the world to offer CyberKnife, while also becoming the first facility of its kind to provide treatments in an outpatient setting.

Unlike traditional radiosurgery systems, the CyberKnife uses image-guided technology, eliminating the need for a painful headframe, as is often associated with radiosurgery. CyberKnife is unique in its ability to treat lesions inside the brain and body, making radiosurgery a viable option for those who are not candidates for traditional treatment methods.
