In brief: Only certain lesions

Mets from colon cancer when smaller than 5 cm and exta hepatic in orign are good targets for nano knofe therapy.
In the liver when there is no response to chemo one has many options including chemoembolization, isotope infusion or infusion with rasiolabelled microspheres. When chemo fails one can also add the newer immunotherapeutic agents.
