Handbook of Radioembolization : Physics, Biology, Nuclear Medicine, and Imaging (Hardcover)
About this item
Radioembolization is now the preferred treatment for both primary and secondary liver cancer. This handbook addresses the radiation biology, physics, nuclear medicine, and imaging for radioembolization using Yttrium-90 (90Y) microspheres, in addition to discussing aspects related to interventional radiology. The contents reflect new on-label hepatic treatment indications, both in the US and worldwide, as well as dose-response relationships associated with radioembolization and the utility of adjuvant radioembolization and systemic chemotherapy.
