Services for new and existing CyberKnife centres
German CyberKnife Services
Many new CyberKnife centres which have opened in recent years have experienced long delays and 'teething problems' before becoming fully operational. Some have never achieved full operational status due to perceived technical problems and associated costs.
It is not uncommon for new centres to take months to come up to anticipated operating capacity. Examples of where too few treatments are performed after installation have been found worldwide, in Asia, Russia, even in Europe and the USA - basically in all countries.
Quite simply there is not enough expertise worldwide to satisfy the technical and medical needs for quality and quantity of CyberKnife treatments needed.
