I just did some quick research and this does sound promising. It is very limited in case studies. 20,000 total surgeries for ALL cancers is less than 1% of LRP's and RRP's performed. Nice job finding this though. I will continue to research this as it may be helpful to all of us. This is not mainstream but could one day get there. I always said if a system could sample tissue realtime and pathologically define the tissue, then hit it with radiation all in one motion, now we have a cool science. Sounds like McCoy on Star Trek. If this machine could get us half way there then by all means bet on it. Too early to tell. I'll keep looking. I did notice it is more used for cranial disease that elsewhere.
Age 45 (44 when Dx)
Pre-op PSA was 19.8
Surgery on Feb 16, 2007
Post-Op Pathology was poor: Gleason 4+3=7, 4 positive margins, Stage pT3b (Stage III)
HT began in May, '07 with Lupron and Casodex 50mg
IMRT radiation for 38 Treatments ending August 3, '07
My PSA did drop out after surgery to undetectable. It has not returned and I will continue HT until January '08.
My Life is supported very well by family and friends like you all.
