My father has been diagnosed with liver cancer HCC.
1) size is 5 x 4.7 x 7.2 cm
2) With small thrombus in right portal vein
3) Shunting is more than 60%
4) Liver cirrhosis

Can CyberKnife treatment be done in this scenario. Thanks much in advance for any help and guidance.

That is pretty big. Might be better treated with radiolabelled spheres or TACE.
