What to Expect During the CyberKnife Procedure?
You will be positioned on the treatment couch in the exact position as the CT scanning day. The CyberKnife uses imaging technology to ensure you are in the correct position. The CyberKnife therapist and radiation oncologist verify the images prior to beginning the treatment.
The procedure usually takes 30 to 60 minutes, but may take up to 90. After the treatment, you will meet with your doctors and resume your normal activities.
It’s our staff’s mission at CyberKnife Center of Miami to manage your expectations and put your mind at ease by explaining the CyberKnife procedure from beginning to end, ensuring your experience is as comfortable and calming as possible.
What to Expect After the CyberKnife Procedure?
You will be instructed and scheduled for follow-up imaging studies (CT, MRI, PET) as determined by your doctors. These scans are typically ordered one to three months after treatment.
