Interventional radiology procedures often play an integral role in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with cancer. In the latter stages of cancer treatment, palliative care therapies may be sought for improvement in the quality of remaining life for oncology patients. Increased awareness among interventionalists and referring oncologists regarding minimally invasive treatments for palliation is desirable to provide additional options for patients. In particular, endovascular therapies can provide control of symptoms and complications related to incurable malignancies.
