Treatment Methods and Latest Research in Early-stage HCC

According to the BCLC staging, early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma is categorised as patients with a good performance status (PS 0) and Child-Pugh scores of A or B with up to three tumour nodules each measuring less than 3 cm.



Intermediate-stage HCC: Exploring Treatment Options

While the classically recommended treatment option for intermediate-stage HCC patients is transarterial chemoembolisation (TACE), this decision should always be made on an individual case basis and other options are worth considering, such as radioembolisation and percutaneous ablation.



Oncologic Management of Metastatic Disease: Focus on Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

It is estimated that 50-60% of colorectal cancer patients will develop metastases during the course of their disease, with up to 25% presenting with synchronous lesions.


ECIO 2016


ECIO 2016: A glimpse of the congress

Interventional radiologists from around the world, along with many of their oncologist colleagues, attended this year's ECIO congress to learn more about advances in interventional oncology. Find out more about why they took part, and why they'll be joining us again in Bilbao, Spain for ECIO 2017.



ECIO 2016: Ablation of lung cancers

Thermal ablation is a valuable tool in the fight against lung cancers, offering a minimally invasive, reiterative treatment that is often suitable for patients who are deemed unfit for surgery or SBRT.

Alice Gillams, Jens Ricke and Peter Kennedy discuss the advantages of the therapy, how it can be integrated into a multidisciplinary setting, and where the data is taking us.



ECIO 2016: Bone cancer interventions

Percutaneous bone ablation, peripheral cementoplasty and percutaneous osteosynthesis are several of the palliative and, in some cases, curative techniques that interventional radiologists use today to combat bone metastases in cancer patients.



ECIO 2016: Colorectal liver metastases

With a wide range of minimally invasive, image-guided therapies available for treating this disease, interventional oncology now plays an important role in the multidisciplinary management of metastatic colorectal liver cancer patients.
