Course Description

Y-90 therapy for liver tumors involves a series of activities to select the proper dose for the treatment, receive the doses, assay them, deliver them correctly and handle waste issues. This course will take students through a team-based process involving interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, nursing, and radiation safety to give an example of a highly reliable operation that is currently in use at a busy academic medical center. We will use actual de-identified case data, data from packages and doses, forms and procedures to show how the process works and some of the issues that arise with discussions for solutions. Both resin and glass Y-90 microspheres will be discussed.  Radiation dose rate measurements and estimates from activities will also be discussed.
