Cancer Control recently published an article in the April 2010, Vol. 17, No. 2 issue titled, Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy for Liver Metastases and Primary Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Normal Tissue Tolerances and Toxicity, by Stephen M. Sawrie, MD, PhD, John B. Fiveash, MD, and Jimmy J. Caudell, MD, PhD.

In Table 3 of this article, the survival rather than local control data were erroneously reported for the Méndez Romero et al study. The local control data for this study should have been reported as:

HCC:     75% at 12 mos
            75% at 24 mos

Mets:     100% at 12 mos
             86% at 24 mos
