Figure 8: (a) Illustrate the application of hepatic radioembolization with Yttrium-90 glass microspheres 99Technetium following quantitative estimation of a right to left intracardiac shunt by a 99Technetium macroaggregated perfusion lung scan. These series of images (b, c) illustrate the benefit of hepatic radioembolization with Yttrium-90 glass microspheres in a cystic hepatocellular carcinoma. There is an initial necrosis of the tumor followed by almost complete shrinkage. (Courtesy Dr Ghulam Mustafa Shah Syed, Department of Medical Imaging, Abdul Aziz Medical City Riyadh)
