dbell - Why are you so fixated on LONG history of a treatment's results? So far, Dr. Katz has published his 9-year results, and has the 10-year results in computation. If we all waited for 15-20 years of results, the newest technology some folks would accept would already be obsolete.
BTW - CyberKnife (and other SBRT applications) more closely match the dosimetry of HDRBT, rather than the long-used LDRBT. That HDRBT only has one or two more years of history in use as a monotherapy, so should be discount both HDTBT and SBRT?
Now, before you think I am trying to start a flame war, I apologize if I mis-interpreted your comment's "stress" level. If you were only "sayin'", then my apology is official. If you were really cautioning the OP against CyberKnife, then we disagree strongly.
Paxton, as you see I am a newbie here and definitely not trying to start a flame war here. I am not bashing Cyberknife etc. only stating what I was recently told by my specialist(s). I was advised by both that if treatment was necessary they would prescribe Brachy. I am just trying to get another perspective here (and learn and obtain more info.), not looking to cause a problem or bash SBRT etc. Curious why people chose surgery, cyberknife and HDRBT etc. I am gathering info. so I can make an intelligent decision someday!
