REMINDER: ORLive Presents: CyberKnife® Stereotactic Radiosurgery Expands the Detection and Treatment of Tumors Inside and Outside the Brain

Live Webcast: From University Hospitals Case Medical Center: December 3, 2007 3:00 PM EST (20:00 UTC)

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - December 3, 2007) - On Monday, December 3rd, surgeons at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio, will demonstrate the use of the CyberKnife® system on www.OR-Live.com. This form of stereotactic radiosurgery expands the detection and treatment of tumors inside and outside the brain -- including the skull base, neck and entire spine.

CyberKnife delivers high dose radiation beams specifically targeted to the tumor, while minimizing damage to the surrounding tissue. This revolutionary technology benefits patients who are poor candidates for conventional surgery, and requires no incision for the patient.

Radiosurgery Center Directors Robert J. Maciunas, MD, MPH, FACS, and Douglas Einstein, MD, PhD, will co-host the premiere Internet webcast. Viewers are invited to e-mail questions to the doctors.
