Historically, Radiation Therapy (RT) has played a minor role in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma, especially because of toxicity related to conventional techniques. However, high radiation doses can now be given safely by means of 3D-conformal techniques and other more specialized techniques. 3D-conformal RT, in which both target definition and treatment planning are based on three-dimensional image data sets, provided good local control in several series. As an evolution of cranial… CONTINUE READING
