Nitroglycerine use in transcatheter arterial (chemo)embolization in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and dual-energy CT assessment of Lipiodol retention
European Radiology, 05/31/2012Liu YS et al.
Nitroglycerine increased delivery of the Lipiodol emulsion via transcatheter arterial (chemo)embolization (TAE/TACE) to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tumours with significant tumour reduction. Dual–energy CT can accurately quantify the amount of Lipiodol deposited in tumours.
