Dr Graeme Poston - University Hospital Aintree, Liverpool, UK

Metastases affecting the liver have historically been extremely difficult to treat, however, treatment options have increased dramatically over recent years. Dr Graeme Poston explains how advances in chemotherapy now allow clinicians to shrink inoperable tumours to a size where they can be operated upon and identifies further benefits to the patient from such a multi-discipline approach. Dr Poston discusses the advances that have been made in development of liver cancer treatment and patient outlook for each of these treatments.
