Outcomes Following Image-Guided Therapy for Hepatic Malignancies


OBJECTIVES:

- Develop a data repository for clinical and health-related quality of life outcome
measures in patients with hepatic malignancies treated with image-guided therapies.

OUTLINE: This is a pilot, prospective, longitudinal study.

Patients complete a standard questionnaire assessing health-related quality of life at
baseline, during routine follow-up care after image-guided therapy, and then annually
thereafter. Health and disease status and the development of other illnesses are assessed by
medical record review.
