Cluster of SIR-Spheres® Y-90 resin microspheres
Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT) administration is performed through insertion of small catheter into the femoral artery
Venous and arterial vasculature – whole body overview
Tumors receive their blood supply from the hepatic artery
Portal vein is highlighted – this vein is the blood supply for the normal liver tissue
Liver anatomy, with presence of inoperable tumors
SIR-Spheres Y-90 resin microspheres are released into the arterial blood supply
SIR-Spheres Y-90 resin microspheres being carried through the hepatic arteries to the tumor
SIR-Spheres Y-90 resin microspheres are smaller than a strand of human hair
SIR-Spheres Y-90 resin microspheres are carried directly to the tumor by the arterial blood supply
The SIR-Spheres Y-90 resin microspheres deliver beta radiation directly to the tumor leaving normal tissues unaffected
The microspheres contain yttrium-90, and deliver beta radiation directly to the tumor
Necrotic tumor after beta radiation is delivered directly to the tumor from the microspheres
Tumors can be selectively irradiated leaving normal tissues unaffected
