New Jersey CyberKnife Recognized for RSSearch® Patient Registry Contributions

New Jersey CyberKnife at Community Medical Center is recognized by RSSearch® by The Radiosurgery Society as the second-largest contributor in the world for 2019. Serving in the community hospital world-renown for its radiosurgery program, Dr. Iyers and Dr. D’Ambrosio have contributed a substantial amount of potentially groundbreaking treatment data and patient information to foster new studies and treatment guidelines.

The Radiosurgery Society (RSS) is a non-profit organization of medical professionals dedicated to advancing the science and clinical practice of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and radiosurgery (SRS). In clinical research, every protocol has a strict list of patient qualifications and a pre-determined treatment to be given. RSSearch® Patient Registry is a gold mine of data that records pre-treatment information, treatment outcomes, and patient-reported outcomes of all patients with no pre-treatment qualifications other than agreeing to participate and the treatment used is determined by the doctors treating them.

As more and more of this “real-life” data is captured, clinical research professionals can get an inside look at what happens outside of the current protocol guidelines. This can influence what studies should be done in the future, as well as how treatments are used. The RSSearch® Patient Registry has had 15 publications of significant outcome studies, has been cited by the most prestigious journals in the oncology field, and is by far the largest and most robust live database of its kind in the field of SRS/SBRT managed by a professional medical society.

Thank you, Drs. Iyers and D’Ambrosio for your commitment to your patients, providing the best treatment outcomes possible and the data that supports it all.
