Providing New Hope to Patients with Metastatic Liver Tumors
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with colorectal cancer that has spread (metastasized) to the liver, it is important to learn the facts and evaluate treatment options. A diagnosis of colorectal liver metastases can be overwhelming, but there is hope.
SIR-Spheres® microspheres treatment is a targeted radiation therapy that selectively delivers a dose of internal radiation to liver tumors. Due to the liver tumor's unique blood supply, millions of tiny spheres are delivered directly to the tumors while sparing healthy liver tissue. The treatment is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure and is administered via a small flexible tube (microcatheter) into the liver.
