Ray,

Truebeam STX radiation dosage per treatment 8.0 Gray units

Cyberknife radiation per treatment 20.0 Gray units

Total dosage delivered is cumulative and depends on the type of procedure and length of each procedure and number of procedures.

Hope the above helps.

How does Truebeam compare to Cyberknife in terms of the amount of dosage and number of sessions required? Seems that Truebeam uses 2D physics (LINAC rotation + beam shaping) whereas Cyberknife has true 3D physics so that precision is higher for CK.
