CVIR was two special sections coming up this year; one on dialysis access interventions and a second one on MSK. Stay tuned!
Special issue - Radioembolisation
CVIR's latest special section curated by guest editors Professors Laura Crocetti and Thierry de Baère.
Professors Crocetti and de Baère commissioned nine articles, which they say "cover the most recent knowledge and scientific evidence about radioembolization technique, patient selection and clinical outcomes."
In an editorial for the special section, the guest editors conclude "A lot has been learnt in terms of dosimetry and patient selection, and this supplementary issue of CVIR will provide the reader many valuable information. Radioembolization is alive, and same player shoots again!"
Issue: November 2022
