    Cancer Therapies

    We work closely with local oncologists and surgeons in the treatment of cancer. Many malignancies can be treated with transarterial chemotherapy, embolization, radiofrequency ablation, and radioimmunotherapy.
    Bland Embolization: Delivery of particles, glues and/or other space fillers into blood vessels in order to selectively decrease blood flow to cancerous or blood-stealing tumors.

    Radioimmunotherapy imaging and ablation:

    In conjunction with an oncologist, intravascular antibody and image-directed blood cell cancer radioisotope ablation therapies using cancer cell surface antigen-targeted application of radioactive yttrium-90 to selectively kill malignant cells.
    Radioiodine imaging and ablation: Molecular and metabolic image-directed thyroid cancer radioactive isotope ablation therapy.

    Chemoembolization:

    Tumor-localized chemotherapy infusion placed within tumor-feeding vessels for maximal toxic effect to cancer masses.

    Percutaneous Ablation:

    Image-guided surgical techniques that use needles placed through the skin to direct chemical, heat or voltage energy to injure a tumor mass.
