Figure 1 The radiotherapy plans of different radiotherapy techniques for hepatocellular carcinoma. A: 2-dimensional radiotherapy (2D-RT); B: 3-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT); C: Intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT); D: dose volume histogram of the tumor (blue) and normal liver (brown). IMRT plan shows the best liver sparing while 2D-RT shows the worst liver sparing.
