Benefits of Radioembolization

  • No surgical incision required — only a small nick in the skin that does not have to be stitched closed
  • Higher dose of radiation for better tumor treatment than with standard external beam radiation therapy
  • Fewer side effects compared to standard chemotherapy or radiation therapy
  • Proven to extend lives from months to years and improve overall quality of life
  • May allow for other treatment options such as surgery or liver transplantation
