The patterns of spread and the primary tumor classification are similarly color coded: </li></ul><ul><li>Tis (cancer in situ of mucosa), yellow; </li></ul><ul><li>T1 (infiltrates the submucosa), green; </li></ul><ul><li>T2 (penetrates the muscularis externa), blue; </li></ul><ul><li>T3 (reaches the subserosa), purple; and </li></ul><ul><li>T4 (invades through the serosa into a neighboring viscera), red. </li></ul>
  4. 5. Radiation can safely expand the ‘surgical resection’ volume
  5. 6. Rectal cancers can be resected as Stage II A/B (purple) with N1 nodes but are less favorable and borderline resectable stage IIIC (red) as N2 nodes (>4) are found, stage IV are (black) metastatic. Stage 0, yellow; I, green; II, blue; III, purple; IV, red; and IV (metastatic), black. Definitions of TN on left and stage grouping on right .

  38. 45. A phase I/II dose-escalation trial of Cyberknife radiation for control of primary or metastatic liver disease Early toxicity has been mild with 3 patients (13%) experiencing grade 2 or greater toxicity. In the 21 patients with >3 month follow-up, 3 (14%) have experienced a late toxicity. There have been 6 local recurrences. The lesion local recurrence rate is 17% and the patient local recurrence rate is 25%. Mean time to recurrence was 8.4 months. Conclusion: Cyberknife radiation can be delivered safely in doses up to 30 Gy in a single fraction. Accrual of long-term local control and toxicity data is ongoing.
