Abstract

Centers performing SIRT should ideally be characterized by a multidisciplinary approach to the design, delivery, and reappraisal of primary or metastatic liver cancer treatment, or by referral from a multidisciplinary team familiar with the procedure (Table 1) (Kennedy et al. 2007; Wang et al. 2010). Moreover, the likely interactions between SIRT and any prior, concurrent or planned biological, chemotherapeutic, local or loco-regional ablative, surgical, external beam radiation treatment, or radiosurgery should be extensively discussed within a multidisciplinary tumor board
