Desktop SEM Imaging in the Development of a Radioablation Device

Published 13 June 2011 | By Phenom World

Radioembolization is a type of internal radiation therapy developed for the treatment of liver tumors. Liver tumors rely almost exclusively on the hepatic artery for their blood supply. In radioembolization, radioactive particles are selectively administered to the hepatic artery, leading to a selective accumulation of these particles around the tumor. Consequently, the tumor tissue is irradiated, whilst sparing the healthy liver tissue.
