UNLABELLED (90)Y radioembolization is a promising therapy for patients with primary and secondary liver malignancies. Pretherapeutic assessment consists of hepatic angiography and (99m)Tc-macroaggregated albumin ((99m)Tc-MAA) perfusion scintigraphy to estimate the liver-to-lung shunt and exclude extrahepatic (99m)Tc-MAA deposition. However, the predictive value of intratumoral (99m)Tc-MAA uptake remains unclear. METHODS One hundred four patients with chemotherapy-refractory liver-dominant… CONTINUE READING
