Imaging plays a key role in interventional oncological procedures such as transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) and percutaneous portal vein embolization (PVE). TACE delivers highly concentrated doses of chemotherapy to the tumor bed, while sparing the surrounding parenchyma. The technique has gained wide acceptance over the past twenty years and is now considered the mam therapy for unresectable primary and metastatic liver cancer. This article presents four TACE and PVE procedures carried out using 3D soft tissue imaging on the Philips Allura Xper FD 20 system. The advantages and challenges of the procedures are discussed, and the clinical results are presented.
