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 any group providing such subject treatment? I ask, as ACCURAY CyberKnife states it's used for "Treatment of Tumors anywhere in the body".

Accuray Cyberknife misrepresents their product. It does not treat tumors anywhere in the body, as the Peritoneal.

Not true. It treats tumors anywhere. It just does not make sense to treat most peritoneal tumors since they spread along peritoneal surfaces and it is impossible to image them accurately.
