Figure 3: In preparation for hepatic radioembolization with Yttrium-90 glass microspheres 99Technetium macroaggregated is given via the hepatic artery and regions of interest are drawn over lungs, liver and background. Less than 5% systemic shunt of 99Technetium macroaggregated is normal. The 5-15% is insignificant and we proceed to Yttrium-90 glass microspheres with a standard 150 Gy dose. With a systemic shunt of 10-25%, the dose of Yttrium-90 glass microspheres is modified to 110-130 Gys. (Courtesy Dr. Ghulam Mustafa Shah, Department of Medical King Abdul Aziz Medical City Riyadh)
