The liver represents a frequent site for primary and secondary neoplasia. Cytoreductive techniques positively influence the outcome of disease progression in these patients. Transhepatic arterial radioembolotherapy utilizing yttrium-90 microspheres represents a recently available in situ therapy that has shown encouraging results in the treatment of these patients. Harnessing the skills of many different specialties, such as interventional radiology, surgical oncology, medical oncology, nuclear medicine, radiation oncology, medical physics, and radiation safety, brings invaluable expertise to the treatment process for a safe and effective radioembolization treatment program.
