With increasing use of radiation for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) through trans-arterial radioembolization (TARE) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), there is concern for increased radiation related complications when using SBRT after TARE. This study compares safety of SBRT following segmental TARE versus trans-arterial chemoembolization (TACE).

To evaluate feasibility and efficacy of Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) for unresectable liver metastasis in oligometastatic patients.
Although several prospective studies have reported the efficacy of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), treatment-related toxicity varies and has not been determin...
Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is an effective therapy for treating liver malignancies. However, little is known about interfractional dose variations to adjacent organs-at-risk (OARs). We...
Retrospective evaluation of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
Although stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is an attractive non-invasive approach for liver irradiation, it presents specific challenges associated with respiration-induced liver motion, dail...
This is a Phase II trial to characterize the safety and efficacy of individualized stereotactic body radiation therapy (SRBT) for patients who have had previous liver treatment or who have...
This pilot clinical trial studies magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in treating patients with liver metastases or liver cancer. SBRT is a s...
This pilot clinical trial studies stereotactic body radiation therapy in treating patients with liver cancer that cannot be removed by surgery. Stereotactic radiation therapy may be able t...
This study is designed to see whether stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) can reduce tumour size, slow progression of the disease, prolong life and improve quality of life of patien...
Trans-arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is a standard treatment for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (also called liver cancer). This is where chemotherapy is injected into the arter...
A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
Organs which might be damaged during exposure to a toxin or to some form of therapy. It most frequently refers to healthy organs located in the radiation field during radiation therapy.
Drugs used to protect against ionizing radiation. They are usually of interest for use in radiation therapy but have been considered for other, e.g. military, purposes.
The observation, either continuously or at intervals, of the levels of radiation in a given area, generally for the purpose of assuring that they have not exceeded prescribed amounts or, in case of radiation already present in the area, assuring that the levels have returned to those meeting acceptable safety standards.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
