We are looking for centres performing this technique as crafted by MD Anderson a few years ago:
This applies to either SBRT with IMRT or Proton, but revolves about giving ablative radiotherapy dosis (+85 Gy fractioned) instead of traditional palliative ones (15-25Gy fractioned).
My mothers ICC size is around 7cm and resembles some of the clinical cases reported by MD Anderson papers regarding this ablative therapy.
This approach for ICC cases costs around USD 200-300K at MD Anderson (without insurance). I’m aware Dr Chris Crane is now working at MSKCC so I suppose it’s being perfomed at that centre and possibly Mass General as well.
Looking for other centres that might have the technical capabilities to perform this procedure internationally.
