Accelerators co-host Dr. Matt Spraker hosts Radiation Oncologists Drs. Krish Jethwa, Neil Newman, and Jeff Ryckman for romp through the exciting world of radiotherapy for liver tumors!
In the first of this two part episode, we Krish, Neil, and Jeff explore how liver tumors are treated in practice. We learn that Jeff can tell your Child-Pugh score by looking at your finger nails and other tips that can help with patient selection. Then we have a fantastic data-driven discussion on treatment planning. We also cover motion management and delivery.
Toward the end, we approach the topic that inspired this episode, comparing SBRT with catheter-based therapies.
Like Krish, we all want to know: will Neil "let it fly" on why SBRT should be the therapy of choice?
Tune in next week to find out.
Here are some things that were discussed doing the show:
