IMRT vs SBRT for liver met

Postby pukalania » Thu Oct 30, 2014 3:31 pm

So now we are looking to switch to IMRT vs SBRT..still haven't had a chance to discuss with radiation onc..but wanted to check in with you sweeties if anyone has experienced IMRT and has it really worked for liver mets? As far as i understand it is a lower dose radiation than SBRT but generally the same idea...but then why didn't we start with that..just bugs me that gotta take a chance due to insurance...but I understand this is all investigational...
thanks so much..as always
