Hi John,

Thanks so much. I googled it and came up with a few articles on it from the past few months. I'm surprised I missed it when it first came out, but that's why it's nice having people like you watching out for such things! :)
There was a phone number and an email for the contact person there. I plan on bringing this up to my onc when I talk to him next, but i went ahead and sent an inquiry email to the contact name. I let her know my cancer situation and that I'll know more specifics after my scan later this week but, in the meantime, I'm wondering if she can give me any more info such as as minimum tumor size requirements (which i think you said you read was 4 mm?), who the overseeing radiation oncologist(s) are, how I can get evaluated to see if I qualify, etc.

It sounds like this procedure is very much like cyberknife, but without the need for having gold feducial beads in each tumor, like is neccessary for cyberknife. I don't know how that would work since I have what two scan reports ago worded as "innumerable subcentimeter pulmonary nodules". Hopefully, someone will get back to me. I will let you know what they say if/when I hear back from them. If I don't hear back by the end of the week, I will call the phone #- just thought I'd wait until I have scan results for that, though.
