Presentations

Within IR, there are so many subspecialties and many IR physicians have carved their experiences in those sub-specialties. This sections tries to bring in the experiences of the different IR s across the world sharing their knowledge on a single platform. These also include presentations from radiology fellows, residents, technicians and nurses sharing their knowledge.

Role of Interventional Radiology in the Management of Pelvic Hemorrhage

in

Pelvic fractures carry highest mortality rate of any skeletal injury. Various reasons for bleeding in pelvic fractures. Timely identification and control of pelvic bleeding are pivotal in reducing the mortality. This presentation covers causes, role of IR in the management of pelvic fractures, followed by few case examples.

Parathyroid venous sampling

Parathyroid venous sampling

in

Parathyroid venous sampling is utilized when sestamibi and additional imaging are inconclusive or discordant, frequently in post-surgical patients. It is performed as a preoperative outpatient examination, allows surgeons to perform targeted unilateral neck dissection. Preoperative localization improves intraoperative identification of adenoma, and in turn leaves more favorable postoperative field if re-exploration is necessary (5-10% of cases), […]

Is Radioembolization without 99mTc-macroaggregated albumin injection possible: A retrospective review of 39 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma

Is Radioembolization without 99mTc-macroaggregated albumin injection possible: A retrospective review of 39 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma

in

Can SIRT be performed without TcMAA injections in most patients is a biggest question to answer? This study demonstrates using pre-known target liver volume, single-session planning angiogram followed by SIRT without TcMAA injection might be feasible using a patient specific dose that is pre-ordered (TheraSphere) or drawn on that day (SIR-Spheres).

Y90 Radioembolization: Does dosimetry and distribution of planning Tc99m MAA on SPECT/CT correlate with posttreatment Y90 PET/CT?

Y90 Radioembolization: Does dosimetry and distribution of planning Tc99m MAA on SPECT/CT correlate with posttreatment Y90 PET/CT?

in

Injection of Tc99m MAA to measure shunting is routine practice prior to Y90 radioembolization of hepatic tumors.  Trials have shown inconclusive data on if MAA distribution can be used to predict Y90 dosimetry and also limited for quantitative assessment. This study was performed to assess dosimtery on the MAA based on local deposition method and its […]

The What, How and Why of Immediate Post-Y90 Imaging

The What, How and Why of Immediate Post-Y90 Imaging

in

y90 Radioembolization is a palliative management option in liver tumor treatments, where in the y90 is injected via the hepatic arteries. Post y90 infusion, Imaging is performed to assess the distribution and quantification of dose received.  This presentation talks about the various options available along with the pros and cons. This was presented at RSNA […]
