Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Solely For Liver Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.

This study is a research and development initiative established to explore the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a tool for managing organ motion of the liver in cancer patients planning procedures for stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT).

Primary Liver CancerMetastatic Liver Cancer From Any Cancer Site
There is a potential role to systematically implement MRI to establish appropriate workflow of the implementation for tumor motion management in liver SBRT. Compared to CT, MRI has many significant advantages for radiotherapy planning, including superior tumor and soft-tissue contrast, flexible imaging orientation, freedom from radiation exposure and real-time imaging. MRI solely based liver SBRT will allow for more precise delineation of target volume, less uncertainties in treatment planning, better motion management, and potentially better treatment outcome
