Stereotactic body radiotherapy for liver tumors: Principles and practical guidelines of the DEGRO Working Group on Stereotactic Radiotherapy


Sterzing, F; Brunner, T B; Ernst, I; Baus, W W; Greve, B; Herfarth, K; Guckenberger, M (2014). Stereotactic body radiotherapy for liver tumors: Principles and practical guidelines of the DEGRO Working Group on Stereotactic Radiotherapy. Strahlentherapie und Onkologie, 190(10):872-881.

Abstract

PURPOSE: This report of the Working Group on Stereotactic Radiotherapy of the German Society of Radiation Oncology (DEGRO) aims to provide a practical guideline for safe and effective stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) of liver tumors.
METHODS: The literature on the clinical evidence of SBRT for both primary liver tumors and liver metastases was reviewed and analyzed focusing on both physical requirements and special biological characteristics.
RESULTS: Recommendations were developed for patient selection, imaging, planning, treatment delivery, motion management, dose reporting, and follow-up. Radiation dose constraints to critical organs at risk are provided.
CONCLUSION: SBRT is a well-established treatment option for primary and secondary liver tumors associated with low morbidity.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
