Leon-Berard Cancer Multidisciplinary Center (CLB) in Lyon, France, has become Europe’s first hospital to install the CyberKnife VSI System for the treatment of cancer.

The CyberKnife VSI System, which is now part of the hospital’s Radiation Oncology department, can be used to deliver accurate, high-dose radiation to tumours that move due to respiration or normal bodily functions.

CLB Radiation Oncology department head Christian Carrie said the CyberKnife VSI System will help deliver not only more typical radiation therapy, but will also allow it to treat cancer patients who would otherwise have no other options.

“Although the CyberKnife VSI System has the capacity to deliver conventional fractionation, the main reason we chose this system is for its superior accuracy and efficiency in the treatment of moving targets, in particular, the liver and prostate,” Carrie said.
