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.

Is there a habitus limit for the patient? For instance, the weight the table can accomodate.

There are weight and size limits but they vary from place to place. In very large patients, there can be problems with scanning also. Best thing is to talk to the center where you would want to be treated. There is no universal answer to your question
