The Interventional Radiology Division is involved in a variety of research endeavors. Briefly, members of the division have recently participated in a number of federally funded trials evaluating:

  • Immunoembolization of Metastatic Uveal Melanoma
  • Thermal Ablation of Painful Skeletal Metastases
  • Use of Ultrasound Contrast Agents to Estimate Portal Hypertension

In addition to the above, other active prospective trials include projects evaluating outcomes in Interventional Oncology, currently focusing on but not limited to:

  • Radioembolization of Hepatocellular Carcinoma with SIRSpheres
  • Use of Drug Eluting Beads for Chemoembolization
  • Treatment of Metastatic Uveal Melanoma with SIRSpheres

Other projects reviewing outcomes in Interventional Oncology are ongoing.
