RT is an effective local therapy that has the potential to benefit patients unsuitable for and/or at high risk of complication following standard local-regional therapies. All of the following have facilitated the safe delivery of tumorcidal doses to focal HCCs using conformal RT: advances in imaging, RT planning techniques, image-guided radiotherapy, tumor immobilization, and improved knowledge of what volume of liver is required to be spared from radiation to preserve function. SBRT has more recently been used to treat focal HCC. SBRT is widely available and more convenient for patients than conventionally fractionated RT, as it is delivered in far fewer fractions than standard fractionated RT. We report our experience for a patient treated successfully with SBRT.
