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 on and off-label treatment indications, dose-response relationships, treatment-planning, therapy optimization, radiation safety, imaging follow-up and many other facets of this therapy necessary for both novice and advanced users alike. Features: ✓ Focuses on the radiation biology, physics, nuclear medicine, and imaging aspects of radioembolization. ✓ Logically follows the timeline of radioembolization, from treatment planning to treatment and patient follow-up. ✓ Reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the field, providing interventional radiologists with a basis in the physics and nuclear medicine aspects, which largely determine treatment success vs failure. ✓ Covers important topics such as post-treatment imaging, alternative and adjuvant therapies. ✓ Concludes with a chapter on future outlook for intrahepatic and extrahepatic treatment of disease. ------------- Damnant quod non intellegunt!
