The aim of the current work was to present the performance evaluation procedures implemented at our department for the commissioning of a G4 CyberKnife system. This system consists of a robotic manipulator, a target-locating system and a lightweight 6-MV linac. Individual quality assurance procedures were performed for each of the CyberKnife subsystems. The system was checked for the mechanical accuracy of its robotic manipulator. The performance of the target-locating system was evaluated in… CONTINUE READING
