Information

Advanced radiotherapy is evolving towards the reduction of number of fractions and the increase of biological delivered dose. Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) has nowadays a major role in the multidisciplinary management of abdominal tumors, including liver primary and metastatic tumors and pancreatic cancer.
Published data showed that SBRT is effective for local control of these tumors and thus can be considered a viable treatment option for selected patients. However, the optimal integration of SBRT in the multidisciplinary strategies for liver and pancreatic cancer is still to be defined.
Aim of this course is to explore the role of radiotherapy, together with surgery, interventional radiology and medical oncology for these two challenging diseases.
