Newport Diagnostic Center:
A Pioneer in CyberKnife® Development

Newport Diagnostic Center (NDC) welcomed our first patient in 1991. At that time, the written “Pledge of Service” included this sentence:

“We will remain current and innovative with state-of-the-art equipment and technology.”

There is no greater evidence to that promise than the commitment made in 1996 when NDC became the first CyberKnife beta site in the world and prior to the system being cleared by the FDA. Over the years, NDC has recorded an impressive number of firsts,
including:

March 17, 1996: World’s first stereotactic radiosurgery on a patient using a commercial image guided robotic system
December 18, 1998: World’s first radiosurgery for trigeminal neuralgia using a commercial image guided robotic system
June 27, 2001: World’s first body stereotactic radiosurgery on a patient using a commercial image guided robotic system

In 2010, NDC renewed its commitment to providing state-of-the art equipment and technology by upgrading its to the latest platform, the CyberKnife G4, which provides tumor procedures so advanced, most treatments are completed in five or fewer visits.
