Abstract: A computational investigation has shown that the epithermal neutron beam presently used for BNCT of the brain in the HFR in Petten, the Netherlands, can also be used for BNCT of extra-corporal livers. Liver BNCT has already been performed in Pavia Italy providing very promising results. By rotating the liver and surrounding it by Polymethylmethacrylate and graphite and with the appropriate dimensions of the set-up, the same homogeneity in the thermal neutron field in the liver can be obtained in Petten as in Pavia.
