Therapeutic interventional oncology procedures such as embolization techniques aims to occlude the blood vessels feeding the tumour and thereby destroy it by means of ischemia. Embolization techniques are minimally invasive treatment, i.e. they may be delivered through the skin (in a percutaneous way) without the need for any skin incisions or other form of open surgery. Hence, most treatments are nowadays offered as day case or outpatient appointments and patients may enjoy rapid recovery and minimal pain and discomfort with low rates of complications. Bland embolization includes delivery of sub-millimiter microparticles through a catheter inserted in the groin and advanced into the liver under X-ray guidance to get access into the tumor vasculature. Selective internal radiation therapy (also known as SIRT or radioembolization) includes microspheres loaded with a radioactive isotope (Yttrium-90) are injected into the blood vessels feeding a tumor and deliver a lethal dose of radiation into the vessels feeding the tumor thereby causing cell death. Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) includes delivery of intra-arterial chemotherapy to the liver through a catheter in combination with embolic material to produce ischemia. Drug eluting bead chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) includes delivery of microparticles that are themselves loaded with the chemotherapy agent – doxorubicin – and allow for prolonged elution into the tumor microvessels.
