Mount Sinai Study finds Advanced Radiotherapy Offers Safe, Effective Treatment for Patients with Early-Stage Liver Cancer

An advanced radiotherapy technique called radiation segmentectomy may be effective against very early to early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), a type of liver cancer that cannot be treated surgically or thermally.

The findings from a multidisciplinary study by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai were published in the journal Lancet Gastroenterology and Hepatology. It is the first prospective study to explore the efficacy and outcomes of this technique and the results suggest it may be a curative treatment for inoperable, early-stage HCC.
