In brief: Targeted radiation
Cyberknife® is an entirely new approach to stereotactic radiosurgery because it can deliver targeted radiation to anywhere in the body, while minimizing exposure to surrounding normal tissue.
It offers all of the advantages of radiosurgery, but without the need for a metal head frame. With sub-millimeter accuracy, cyberknife® can be used to treat tumors, cancers, vascular abnormalities and more.

In brief: Like magic :)
Have you ever burned a leaf on a hot summer's day using a magnifying glass? Cyberknife is a lot like that, but even more so, because if focuses radiation from all different directions.
Cyberknife is also particularly cool in that it can follow your tumor during treatment and can actually follow your tumor if your tumor moves.

In brief: One of many
Cyberknife is one of the many products out there that deliver focused radiation, mostly for tumor treatment.
Similar to things like the gamma knife, it delivers radiation to the target while minimizing spillover to normal surrounding structures with great accuracy.
