CyberKnife M6 – Accurate, Expedited Approach to Robotic Radiotherapy
Dr. Raj Dahiya is a board-certified Dallas, TX, radiation oncologist who has experience caring for patients with cancer of the breast, prostate, skin, and lung. Emphasizing a multidisciplinary approach to treating Dallas-area patients, Dr. Raj Dahiya provides minimally invasive radiation therapy employing technologies such as the CyberKnife M6 robotic system.
With its foundation being CyberKnife’s full-body approach to robotic radiosurgery, the CyberKnife M6 was introduced by Accuray, Inc., in 2015, with the first patient treated for brain meningioma. This brain condition requires an extremely precise tumor-targeting approach, with healthy tissue spared and only those areas involving cancerous growth removed.
The initial use of the CyberKnife M6 significantly reduced operational time from one hour to just over 20 minutes, while providing an equivalent level of precision. Throughout the procedure, the system provided continuous imaging, which was essential in delivering an accurate radiation dose for the correct length of time.
Dr. Rajiv Dahiya provides CyberKnife M6 treatment in conjunction with the advanced TomoTherapy H Series, also from Accuray.
