my brother is 60 years old with history of hepatitis C Virus , last week he discovered via a CT scan the following: - The liver is enlarged with uneven outline and prominent left lobe , A relatively large ill defined infiltrative mass lesion of about 8 cm in diameter is seen in segment VII , the lesion show heterogeneous faint enhancement mainly in the portal phase of the study . - Another small focal lesion of about 2.5 cm diameter is seen in segment II , this lesion shows homogeneous contrast enhancement in the arterial & portal phases. - Patent and enhancing portal vein. - The spleen is moderately enlarged showing homogeneous texture . - Mild free ascites is seen. Conclusion: - Cirrhotic liver with bilobar hepatic focal lesions likely HCC - Splenomegaly & Mild ascites. can the Cyperknife provide any good results other than the conventional techniques for the a/m case ? your kind elaboration will be very much appreciated.

It would be difficult to treat an 8 cm lesion safely and with good results. Surgery for that one and CK for the smaller one might be a possibility
