Brachial Plexus - supraclavicular approach?

Has the cyberknife ever been used on schwannomas of Brachial Plexus (supraclavicular region)?

I ask because I've read a few article that BP "injuries" can arise from radiation therapy for OTHER tumors near the BP, and as a result, the Plexus is damaged, and 10-15 years later, you get pain, numbness, tingling, etc.

So I wasn't sure if the cyberknife was "approved"/tested, etc. for the BP region?
