Radioembolization for Liver Tumors

Radioactive bead embolization delivers radiation directly to liver tumors through millions of microscopic glass or resin beads. The radioactive beads are injected into the tumor through a small catheter. The tumor absorbs the beads, and the radiation works to destroy the cancer. The radiation targets tumor cells without harming healthy liver tissue. Radioactive bead embolization can deliver hundreds of times the radiation to liver tumors than conventional radiation. It is performed on an outpatient basis. The most common side effect is fatigue for seven to 10 days.
