Norton Cancer Institute offers patients with liver cancer hope through pioneering research and alternative, state-of-the-art treatment options. Our physicians and staff work closely together to give each patient the chance for a cure and the highest quality of life possible.
To help in the diagnosis of liver cancer, Norton Cancer Institute physicians employ several detection techniques including:
- CT scans
- Biopsy Blood tests
The preferred treatment for patients with liver tumors is surgical removal, also called resection. Other options include:
- IntraOperative MRI
- Radio frequency ablation
- Microwave ablation
- Therasphere treatment
As part of our comprehensive services, Norton Cancer Institute also gives patients the opportunity to participate in innovative National Cancer Institute and industry-sponsored clinical research studies. A list of studies is available by contacting the downtown Louisville Norton Cancer Institute Resource Center at (502) 629-3449.
