Abstract

Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is a high-precision conformal radiation technique that ablates the target with small number and high-dose fractions while sparing the surrounding normal tissue. Results of studies for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients treated with SBRT have been reported with high local control rates around 70-100%. SBRT is indicated for HCC patients who are not eligible for surgery or radiofrequency ablation. However, various dose prescription and treatment planning strategies are presently employed by different groups, and information about optimal treatment dose remains limited.
