One of the most exciting treatments for patients suffering from liver cancer or metastatic tumor spread to the liver is Selective Internal Radiation Therapy or SIRT. Your CiC physician administers radioactive, Y90-bound microspheres into the arteries which supply the tumor(s) under X-Ray guidance. The radioactive element Y-90 then bombards the tumors from the inside, delivering a lethal radiation dose to the cancerous cells.
CiC physicians are nationally renowned for their work with this technique, and have performed hundreds of treatments with remarkable success. Please see our Resources/Links page for more information.
