Topic: Radioembolization in Liver Canner

Hi,everyone,

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22941023

Please note: the key word in this article as the authors emphasized at the end of the abstract is patient selection.that means the patient population  is highly selective and must be fit and able to tolerate the high dose of radiation in my opinion.

Another article about patient selection in radioembolization

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20921882

Another study about patient selection and planing strongly suggested to avoid the fatal adverse drug reaction:  to minimize potentially fatal sequelae such as radiation-induced liver disease while delivering tumoricidal (90)Y activity

God bless.
