PURPOSE To identify risk factors relevant to radiation-induced liver disease (RILD) and to determine the hepatic tolerance to radiation. METHODS AND MATERIALS The data of 109 primary liver carcinomas (PLC) treated with hypofractionated three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) were analyzed. Seventeen patients were diagnosed with RILD and 13 of 17 died of it. RESULTS The risk factors for RILD were late T stage, large gross tumor volume, presence of portal vein thrombosis… CONTINUE READING
