Patient Forum

The CyberKnife Patient Forum is designed to provide a place for people who have been diagnosed with cancer, their family and friends, to exchange useful information and provide support to one another. The Forum may also help people find answers to questions they have about the CyberKnife treatment experience. Accuray strives to facilitate these exchanges and encourage discussions. Recently we have experienced some aggressive or inappropriate spam postings. We are diligently working to resolve this issue and thank you in advance for your patience.

What is max dose for each session of CK treatment for liver mets if they are large ? i had 15 g each time . Can it go up to 25 g each time ? If first session does not bring remission can you have a repeat session ?

It depends on a lot of factors. If you go much above 15 Gy it is probably going to be single fraction treatment. Whether it can be repeated also depends on a lot of issues that are not easily discussed with having full access to medical records and scans
