A Pilot Study to assess Theragnostically Planned Liver Radiation with Functional DVH Analysis to Optimize Individualized Radiation Therapy
The purpose of this study is to compare radiation treatment plans that are designed for patients with liver cancer.
One treatment plan will be created using routine procedures and scans normally performed for radiation treatment planning. The other treatment plan will be created using routine procedures with the addition of two imaging scans; a HIDA (Hepatobiliary Iminodiacetic Acid) scan and an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan. This study will evaluate if adding these imaging scans to treatment planning can reduce the amount of radiation to healthy liver tissue during treatment.
