Zap-X uses gyroscopic motion to direct radiosurgical beams from a multitude of angles, precisely concentrating radiation to the tumor target, Zap Surgical said. This allows radiation doses to dissipate quickly beyond the tumor to help protect adjacent healthy brain tissue. It is the only vault-free stereotactic radiosurgery delivery system, according to the vendor.
