Baptist Center for Cancer Care at Baptist Memorial Hospital, Memphis TN has begun treatment with their new Accuray CyberKnife. Designed and built by architection, the new treatment center consists of a renovation of an existing vault, clever utilization of an adjacent mechanical room for use as the requisite CyberKnife equipment room and remodeling of the existing Control Area.
To make room for the new CyberKnife system, the existing vault was heavily modified including removal of large portions of the vault concrete shield wall, addition of new lead brick shielding, extensive revisions to the floor slab and equipment pit and, of course, new finishes throughout.
