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.

THere is not theoretical limit, but there are practical limits. THere must be enough normal liver spared to allow for continued function. If there are more than 2-4, then something else may be better, such as chemotherapy or radiolabeled spheres.

Theory doesn't tell us the specific numbers, but limits are maintained to under 5. This assures functionality and better results
