Interventional neuro-oncology

Monica S. Pearl, Nalin Gupta, Steven W. Hetts

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Interventional neuro-oncology encompasses an array of image-guided therapies—intra-arterial chemotherapy, regional drug delivery, chemoembolization, tumor ablation—along with techniques to improve therapy delivery such as physical or chemical blood–brain barrier disruption and percutaneous catheter placement. Endovascular and percutaneous image-guided approaches to the treatment of the brain, eye, and other head and neck tumors will be discussed.
