About this book

This book provides up-to-date information on all aspects of radiotherapy for liver cancer, from the basic science to clinical practice. While demand for radiotherapy of liver cancer has been increasing, the guidance available to clinicians has remained limited. Radiotherapy of Liver Cancer aims to address this deficit on the basis of the best available evidence. The first two sections explain the relevant basic science and present detailed information on the available technologies and techniques, including the most recent advances. The radiotherapy strategies appropriate in different patient groups are then fully described, covering the use of ablative, adjuvant, neoadjuvant, and definitive radiotherapy, radiotherapy as a bridge to liver transplantation, and palliative radiotherapy. The final section addresses a range of specific issues of concern to the clinician. Radiotherapy of Liver Cancer will be an ideal reference for clinical radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, oncologists, and hepatologists.
