Also, there are devices such as Cyber Knife and Linak which enable stereotactic Radiosurgery like the Gamme Knife. But the most important distinctive feature which separates the Gamma Knife from these devices , also shown scientifically ,is that it gives off the least amount of radiation beam to the normal brain tissue. For this reason we can say that the Gamma Knife is much safer than the other methods of stereotactic radiosurgery.​
