Before you decide in favor of radiosurgery should be positron emission tomography (PET/CT), in which it is possible to accurately observe even very small foci of cancer cells, besides often they are detected more frequently than in other methods of diagnosis. After that, on the basis of the results of the survey together with the patient it is possible to plan which method to use for treatment, radiosurgery, or classic surgery, or radiation therapy, or all of these methods in various combinations.

The radiosurgery Centre Sigulda hospital get the patients in whom other methods in other medical institutions are unable to help urologists are mostly surgeons and have a surgical interest, often these specialists are skeptical about new methods. In fact, however, positron emission tomography (PET/CT), with which it is possible to accurately determine tumor metastases, in combination with details marked with radiosurgery (CyberKnife performance) is currently the most advanced method in the treatment of isolated and located near the metastasis of prostate cancer.
The basis of radiosurgery lies precisely directed radiation therapy high power, the purpose of which is to damage the DNA of tumor cells, regulating the activity of these cells. When DNA is damaged, the cell for some time still alive, but soon dies, dissolves
