For Physicians: Treating the Liver with CyberKnife

Liver Plan

Here is an example of a liver tumor that was treated with CyberKnife.  This patient has kidney cancer that spread to the liver.  He had 1 tumor that was treated in 3 sessions of CyberKnife radiation, given every other day over one week.  This is a picture of his MRI showing the CyberKnife plan.  The orange line is the dose of radiation that was prescribed to the tumor.  It conforms very tightly to the tumor with very little radiation being given to the surrounding normal liver.  He had no side effects at all during treatment and was able to do all his normal activities.
