Liver

The liver serves the critical function of filtering the bloodstream, which often results in cancers originating in other areas of the body spreading to this critical organ. In addition, hepatocellular and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) can originate in the liver. Recent studies have demonstrated that proton therapy patients’ overall survival rates are higher than standard radiation therapy patients when treating these indications.
