Rochester General Health System to Host Liver Cancer Seminar on November 12th
October 11, 2013
Rochester General Health System is hosting a two-hour seminar on end-stage liver cancer. The seminar will discuss the latest in treatment options, including stereotactic beam radiation, surgery, ablation, and a minimally invasive procedure known as Y-90 radioembolization.
Y-90 is performed by interventional radiologists at Rochester General Hospital. In Y-90 radioembolization, tiny glass or resin beads called microspheres are placed inside the blood vessels that feed a tumor in order to block the supply of blood to the cancer cells. Once these microspheres, which are filled with the radioactive isotope yttrium Y-90, become lodged at the tumor site, they deliver a high dose of radiation directly into the tumor while sparing the normal surrounding liver.
A multidisciplinary team of physicians from Rochester General Hospital will present at the seminar and will be available to answer your questions.
