Radioembolization is a widely used treatment for non-resectable primary and secondary liver cancer. This handbook addresses the radiation biology, physics, nuclear medicine, and imaging for radioembolization using Yttrium-90 (90Y) microspheres, in addition to discussing aspects related to interventional radiology. The contents reflect on and off-label treatment indications, dose-response relationships, treatment-planning, therapy optimization, radiation safety, imaging follow-up and many other facets of this therapy necessary for both novice and advanced users alike.
Alexander S. Pasciak, PhD, earned a BS in electrical engineering at the University of Washington, MS in health physics and PhD in nuclear engineering at Texas A&M University. In 2010, Dr. Pasciak completed a 2-year diagnostic medical physics residency at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center after which he worked for 5 years as a diagnostic medical physicist at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. Dr. Pasciak maintains a position as an associate professor of radiology at the University of Tennessee and is concurrently pursuing his MD degree at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. Dr. Pasciak is active in multiple research endeavors in the fields of interventional radiology and medical physics, and he has published papers in high impact journals. Dr. Pasciak has published 35 articles in peer-reviewed medical journals, presented 62 research abstracts at national meetings, has written 6 book chapters, and has filed 2 patents. He currently serves as principal investigator on three externally funded research grants involving radioembolization. Dr. Pasciak is certified by the American Board of Radiology (ABR) in diagnostic medical physics and is Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) qualified.
J. Mark McKinney, MD, earned a medical degree at Loma Linda University School of Medicine in California where he completed a diagnostic radiology residency and interventional radiology fellowship. Dr. McKinney joined the Mayo Clinic in 1993. While at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, he developed the interventional radiology fellowship, mentored residents, made numerous presentations, and authored more than 60 peer-reviewed articles, abstracts, and book chapters. From 2008 to 2012 Dr. McKinney was Chair of Radiology at the University of Tennessee Medical Center and initiated the University of Tennessee interventional oncology radioembolization program. Dr. McKinney returned to Mayo Clinic in 2012 and is serving as Chair of Radiology. Dr. McKinney is an associate professor of radiology in the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. Dr. McKinney is a recent past president of the Association of Program Directors in Radiology and is involved in the new interventional radiology residency program.
“This book will be a valuable resource for anyone already in the field of radioembolisation, whether it be for clinical or scientific guidance, as well as those just starting up and wishing to familiarise themselves with the procedure. It offers detailed insight into the many facets that contribute to successful therapy, and through its multidisciplinary nature promises be a useful tool in improving safety and efficacy of treatment, and establishing a personalised approach to radioembolisation.”
―Dr. Kathy Willowson, The University of Sydney
“An essential book for anybody who is involved or is planning to start Y-90 radioemboliziation, covering state-of-the-art dosimetry approaches using bremsstrahlung SPECT/CT and PET/CT imaging, with excellent descriptions of advantages and limitations.”
―Dr. Karin Knešaurek, Department of Radiology, Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai Hospital
