2 patients (33%) showed a partial response, with a dimensional and densitometric lesions reduction. 3 patients (50%) showed stable disease with diameters unchanged although it was a reduction of the lesions density. Only 1 patient (17%) did not respond to therapy, showing after 6 months disease progression with an increase of lesions number.

Overall, after 3 and 6 months of treatment we have observed a reduction of the liver lesions total diameter average by 8% and 10% respectively, and a reduction lesions density average by 20% and 26% respectively.
