The liver is a common site for metastatic disease for many cancers. Radiation therapy is one means of treatment for liver metastases, especially for patients unable to undergo surgery or ineligible for systemic chemotherapy. In particular, stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) has become an important option in the treatment of metastatic disease in the liver. SBRT delivers ablative doses of radiation in relatively few fractions. As such, precise and clear imaging plays an important role in maximizing disease control while minimizing normal tissue toxicity.
