I-131-Lipiodol Therapy in Liver Neoplasms
11 patients with liver neoplasms (9 HCC,1 CCC,1multiple breast cancer metastases (BCM)) were treated by transarterial I-131-Lipiodol.CT and SPECT showed pronounced I-131-Lipiodol accumulation in the tumor tissue in all cases. In 2 HCC a significant reduction of tumor size was achieved. Of the patients with big tumor mass, 5 (4 HCC, 1 CCC) had stable disease, and 2 HCC were progressive. 1 patient died. The BCM proved significant reduction in number and size. 18-FDG-PET and CT controls showed in part different results with pretherapeutic PET proving high interindividual variability in tumor activity. Side effects were tolerabel.
