Treatment Comparison

CyberKnife

  • Used for metastatic and early primary lung cancer
  • Appropriate for patients who cannot have surgery
  • Noninvasive, no incisions
  • No anesthesia or hospitalization required
  • Painless
  • Five or fewer outpatient treatment sessions
  • Little to no recovery time
  • Allows for an immediate return to daily activities
  • Minimal, if any, side effects due to pinpoint precision of high-dose radiation delivery
  • Minimal radiation exposure to healthy tissue surrounding a tumor

Conventional Radiation

  • Daily outpatient treatment over several weeks
  • Commonly used for Stage III Lung cancer
  • Can treat a larger area of the lung
  • Does not correct for movement

Surgery

  • Historical standard of care for early lung cancers and for diagnosis
  • Outcomes of early stage lung cancer treated with Cyberknife are being reported as equivalent to surgery
  • Requires hospitalization with chest tubes and anesthesia
