Abstract

While initially described and now accepted as treatment for primary and secondary malignancies in the liver, radioembolization therapy has expanded to include treatment for other disease pathologies and other organ systems. Advantages and limitations for these treatments exist and must be compared against more traditional treatments for these processes. This article provides an overview of the current applications for radioembolization outside of the liver, for both malignant and nonmalignant disease.
