Patient Forum

The CyberKnife Patient Forum is designed to provide a place for people who have been diagnosed with cancer, their family and friends, to exchange useful information and provide support to one another. The Forum may also help people find answers to questions they have about the CyberKnife treatment experience. Accuray strives to facilitate these exchanges and encourage discussions. Recently we have experienced some aggressive or inappropriate spam postings. We are diligently working to resolve this issue and thank you in advance for your patience.

Choose CK Generation 2 with experienced team or generation 4 with less experienced team?

My grandma in china suffers from lung adenocarcinoma which has already spreaded to the lymphs in mediastinum, now she decided to have a CK therapy. Two CK centers in Shanghai can offer her the CK therapy. One was established in 2007, which belongs to the best hospital in Shanghai, they have very experienced team, but the machine is 2rd generation. Another was established in 2011, the machine is the newest 4th generation, but I'm not sure if the team has enough experiences. Which one shall we choose? Is there great difference between generations? Looking forward for your reply! It seems that the cancer spreads really rapidly now

Choose the one that is closest. There is no real way to judge which is best, or even if one is better than another
