The purpose of this study is to determine the response of liver tumors to radiation therapy using Tomotherapy.
The purpose of this study is to determine the response of liver tumors to radiation therapy. This study will be using a type of radiation therapy called tomotherapy. Tomotherapy is a relatively new kind of therapy which is able to focus a large amount of radiation to a small area with relatively less radiation to the surrounding non-cancerous part of the organ. This study is being done to find out if this technique is able to control the cancer better or not than the standard radiation and also to study its safety. The usual treatment for this type of disease for patients who are eligible is surgery to remove the tumors. For patients who aren't eligible for surgery or who chose not to have surgery, they are treated with low daily doses of radiation given over many weeks; however this type of treatment has not been very effective.

An internationally recognized set of published rules used for evaluation of cancer treatment that define when tumors found in cancer patients improve, worsen, or remain stable during treatment. These criteria are based specifically on the response of the tumor(s) to treatment, and not on the overall health status of the patient resulting from treatment.

Irradiation of one half or both halves of the body in the treatment of disseminated cancer or widespread metastases. It is used to treat diffuse metastases in one session as opposed to multiple fields over an extended period. The more frequent treatment modalities are upper hemibody irradiation (UHBI) or lower hemibody irradiation (LHBI). Less common is mid-body irradiation (MBI). In the treatment of both halves of the body sequentially, hemibody irradiation permits radiotherapy of the whole body with larger doses of radiation than could be accomplished with WHOLE-BODY IRRADIATION. It is sometimes called "systemic" hemibody irradiation with reference to its use in widespread cancer or metastases. (P. Rubin et al. Cancer, Vol 55, p2210, 1985)
