BACKGROUND Coincidence imaging of low-abundance yttrium-90 (90Y) internal pair production by positron emission tomography with integrated computed tomography (PET/CT) achieves high-resolution imaging of post-radioembolization microsphere biodistribution. Part 2 analyzes tumor and non-target tissue dose-response by 90Y PET quantification and evaluates the(More)
UNLABELLED Compliance with radiobiologic principles of radionuclide internal dosimetry is fundamental to the success of (90)Y radioembolization. The artery-specific SPECT/CT partition model is an image-guided personalized predictive dosimetric technique developed by our institution, integrating catheter-directed CT hepatic angiography (CTHA),(More)
BACKGROUND Yttrium-90 (90Y) positron emission tomography with integrated computed tomography (PET/CT) represents a technological leap from 90Y bremsstrahlung single-photon emission computed tomography with integrated computed tomography (SPECT/CT) by coincidence imaging of low abundance internal pair production. Encouraged by favorable early experiences, we(More)
AIM To investigate the feasibility and procedural value of catheter-directed contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CCEUS) compared with catheter-directed computed tomography arteriography (CCTA) in patients undergoing transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) guided by digital subtraction angiography (DSA). MATERIALS AND METHODS From December 2010 to December 2011,(More)
Histopathologic findings in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia (ARVC/D) are replacement of the normal myocardium with fatty and fibrous elements with preferential involvement of the right ventricle. The right ventricular fibrosis can be visualised by post-gadolinium delayed enhancement inversion recovery imaging (DE imaging). We(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the feasibility and safety of yttrium-90 ((90)Y) radioembolization through the inferior phrenic arteries (IPAs). MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective analysis of 108 patients referred for radioembolization to treat primary (n = 103) or secondary (n = 5) liver malignancy was performed. Five patients had malignant hepatic tumors supplied(More)
Interventional radiology (IR) procedures are associated with high rates of preparation and planning errors. In many centers, pre-procedural consultation and screening of patients is performed by referring physicians. Interventional radiologists have better knowledge about procedure details and risks, but often only get acquainted with the patient in the(More)
The present report describes a patient with septic thrombosis of the inferior vena cava (IVC) related to a subhepatic abscess adjacent to the IVC. Despite prolonged antimicrobial therapy and systemic anticoagulation, sepsis and septic embolism persisted while the size of the thrombus increased. Percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy was performed, resulting(More)
Radioembolization is an effective locoregional therapy for patients with intermediate or advanced stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). It has been shown that radioembolization is safe in patients with portal vein thrombosis. This case report describes safe radioembolization after portal vein embolization in a patient with multifocal HCC.
