Clinical Trials

  • Evaluation of Stereotactic Radiosurgery For Liver Malignancies Not Recruiting

    This study is intended to establish the practicality of treating cancer in the liver with precisely administered single fractions of high-energy radiation using a radiosurgical (cross-firing) technique. A second purpose is to establish a safe dose for such therapy. Finally, the efficacy of radiosurgical ablation of liver tumors, in terms of radiographic response, will be measured.

    Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial. For more information, please contact Jeff Kim, (650) 498 - 7703.
