Cancer Experts Detail New Approaches to Liver Cancer Treatment with Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy
Date:9/3/2013

TAIPEI CITY, Taiwan, Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Clinical experts outlined promising new approaches to treating liver cancer using radiosurgery with advanced imaging and motion management technology. Presentations on non-invasive radiosurgical approaches to treating hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were made by leading clinicians here last week at a meeting organized by the Taiwan Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology and Taiwan Liver Cancer Association. 

HCC, the most common type of liver cancer, is globally the third leading cause of cancer mortality after lung and stomach cancer, and a significant problem in Taiwan, mainland China, and other parts of Asia.1

"Most patients with HCC are not eligible for surgery or liver transplant," said Theodore Lawrence, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chairman of the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Michigan.  "Historically we couldn't do much for them with radiotherapy because we lacked the ability to focus the dose on the tumor and minimize exposure of the rest of the liver.  That has changed with advanced approaches like stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR)."

Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) is a type of radiosurgery that involves the careful use of modern technologies for 3-D image guidance, motion management, and beam shaping.  Dr. Lawrence and his clinical team customize their use of SABR for each patient according to a predictive model they have developed based on treatment data from over 400 HCC cases.  This model helps them determine the optimal radiation dose to use given the volume of liver to be treated.  "High doses can be given safely if enough normal liver can be spared," he explained.
