Locally advanced pancreatic cancer

Hello, My brother was recently diagnosed with adenocalcioma in the pancreas. It is locally advanced, classification is T4 N0M0. Size is 7x4 cm. The doctor's said it cannot be operated on as the cancer surrounds the splenic artery. I'm wondering if Cybeknife could be a helpful addition with the planned chemotherapy in our case or the closeness of stomach and the enclosed artery prevents this. Best regards, Andras

CK is quite effective in this situation. See the nearest CK center
