Nexans completes Creekside Cancer Care project
Nexans Cat 7A cabling supports CyberKnife system
Nexans has completed a project providing infrastructure cabling for the Creekside Cancer Care Outpatient Center in Lafayette, Colorado. The center is home to CyberKnife VSI, a new version of the CyberKnife, the world’s only robotic radiosurgery system which offers patients a non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of tumors anywhere in the body.
The project, which was completed in June 2010, uses Nexans LANmark-7A solution, the highest performance, backwards compatible copper solution available. LANmark-7A features the revolutionary GG45 connector, which is an RJ45 formatted connector thus making it fully compatible with legacy equipment while being capable of supporting future higher bandwidths.

About the CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System
The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System is the world’s only robotic radiosurgery system designed to treat tumours anywhere in the body non-invasively. Using continual image guidance technology and computer controlled robotic mobility, the CyberKnife System automatically tracks, detects and corrects for tumour and patient movement in real-time throughout the treatment. This enables the CyberKnife System to deliver high-dose radiation with pinpoint precision, which minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissue and eliminates the need for invasive head or body stabilization frames.
