The James Graham Brown Cancer Center will begin using a new tool this week to treat certain cancer patients.
The Cyber Knife is a $6 million investment that targets tumors throughout the body with noninvasive radiation treatment. Nine treatments are scheduled this week and officials hope to treat over 300 annually.
“It’s very innovative. It uses a Kuka robot which is the robot that makes BMW cars,” said Christy Stone, the center’s Cyber Knife administrator.
