Selective internal radiation therapy

  • One of the latest liver cancer treatments

    Selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) uses tiny glass beads (microspheres) to send a radioactive element (yttrium-90) through the bloodstream into liver tumors.

    Since the radiation goes directly into the tumor, it is more effective in killing cancer cells and saving normal liver function than standard radiation treatments.
