Y and 99 mTc-MAA injection for two-stage selective internal radiation therapy ( SIRT ) of liver metastases
TLDR
The feasibility of simultaneous Y RE and Tc-MAA injection into another segment/lobe for subsequent (second stage) treatment planning would be desirable to minimize additional angiography sessions in order to improve on the efficiencies of treatment without compromising safety.
Software development for hepatopulmonary shunt estimation by gamma camera method in transarterial radioembolization
TLDR
Pretreatment hepatopulmonary shunt (HPS) is estimated by gamma camera method by transarterial administration of 370MBq99mTc macro aggregated albumin by developed HPS software on XELERIS-1.123 workstation.
Y90-radioembolization via variant hepatic arteries: Is there a relevant risk for non-target embolization?
TLDR
90Y-RE via aberrant hepatic arteries appears to be safe; at least with positioning of the microcatheter tip no less than 1.9 cm distal to the last hepatoenteric side branch vessel.
90Y-TheraSpheres: The New Look of Yttrium-90
TLDR
Recognition of 90Y-TheraSpheres is important so that one may consider the possibility of a nearby malignancy and or establish the cause of the background inflammatory or radiation-related injury.

TLDR
Since the MPAs calculated according to empiric and BSA models will lead to organ toxicity by forming high amounts of absorbed doses at critical organs, these models are not appropriate approaches for dosimetry.
Radioembolization in Colorectal Metastases: A Review
TLDR
Clinical outcomes and dosimetry models in the era of personalized medicine and radioembolization have gained wide acceptance as a safe and efficient treatment for unresectable liver-dominant metastatic colorectal cancer.

Hepatic radioembolization with yttrium-90 containing glass microspheres: preliminary results and clinical follow-up.
TLDR
Preliminary data demonstrate that in the examined dose range, radiation may be safely delivered to liver tumors by means of 90Y glass microspheres with encouraging response data.
Randomised trial of SIR-Spheres plus chemotherapy vs. chemotherapy alone for treating patients with liver metastases from primary large bowel cancer.
TLDR
The combination of a single injection of SIR-Spheres plus HAC is substantially more effective in increasing tumor responses and progression free survival than the same regimen of HAC alone.
A prospective study regarding the complications of transcatheter intraarterial lipiodol chemoembolization in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma
TLDR
Transcatheter intraarterial lipiodol chemoembolization (TACE) has been reported to be one of the most effective palliative measures for HCC, however, its severe side effects continue to make its use controversial.
