INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY EMBOLIZATION
WITH MICROPARTICLES AT IEO
The IEO aims to achieve excellence in the field of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer through the development of clinical scientific research and innovation in the organization and management area. IEO offers constant attention to the quality of services it provides to patients from all over the world.
RADIOLOGY EMBOLIZATION WITH MICROPARTICLES PROCEDURE AT IEO
Radioembolization is a combination of radiation therapy and a procedure called embolization to treat cancer of the liver. Embolization is a minimally invasive treatment in which blood vessels or malformations within blood vessels are occluded, or blocked off, to prevent blood flow.
Radiation therapy is the use of a certain type of energy, called ionizing radiation, to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. Unlike external beam therapy (EBT), in which high-energy x-ray beams generated by a machine are directed at the tumor from outside the body, radioembolization involves placing a radioactive material directly inside the body. This form of treatment is called internal radiation therapy.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
Radioembolization is used to treat cancer tumors that began in the liver or have spread, or metastasized, to the liver from another part of the body. It is a palliative treatment, which means it does not provide a cure but instead helps slow down the growth of the disease and alleviate symptoms. The procedure is an option for patients who are not candidates for other treatments, including surgery or liver transplantation.
IEO PATH OF TREATMENT
WHERE IS IT PERFORMED?
IEO is the most advanced developing Center in using HIFU technology for cancer treatment in the West and has the largest number of HIFU cancer treatments in western countries. HIFU is a cutting-edge, non-invasive technology, developed in China for destroying cancer without scalpels, irradiation or needles. Therefore, the radioembolization with microparticles procedures is run at IEO – Division of Interventional Radiology, lead by Interventional Radiologist Specialist. Also IEO medical staff will suggest the appropriate following therapies taking into account the effective possibilities of the patient to be assisted in his/her homeland.
