“If Radiation Was a Drug”: On Radiotherapy for Liver Tumors With Krish, Neil, and Jeff, Part 2
May 23, 2023 Season 2 Episode 25

Accelerators co-host Dr. Matt Spraker hosts Radiation Oncologists Drs. Krish Jethwa, Neil Newman, and Jeff Ryckman for part 2 of our discussion on radiotherapy for liver tumors.

We kick off with Neil reviewing his Twitter thread comparing TACE and SBRT for liver tumors. We discuss the data supporting SBRT as superior therapy, especially in patients who have recurrence after TACE. We further share some talking points for your tumor board.

Then discuss one of our faves, a randomized trial of sorafenib with or without SBRT (NRG/RTOG 1112). This leads to more discussion about how to approach large/unresectable liver tumors in your tumor board and possible future studies for these patients. 

Here are some things we discussed in the episode:
