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.

Good morning!.
My husband has 2 kidney cancer metastasis in the brain, one is 2,7x4,5x2,7 and is in the medulla oblongata area, the other 15mm is close to this.
He has been booked for the Rapidarc but I want to know which one would be better for him: Rapidard or Cyber Knife?
Thank you

CyberKnife will offer a better ability to reduce normal tissue ill effects, but RapidArc is not terrible
