Imaging & Interventional Specialists - TRANSARTERIAL CHEMOEMBOLIZATION (TACE)
Imaging & Interventional Specialists are experienced and successful at using transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) to treat liver cancer. Our board-certified vascular physicians offer in office diagnostic testing and will customize a treatment plan for liver cancers that may include transarterial embolization.
WHAT IS TRANSARTERIAL CHEMOEMBOLIZATION?
Transarterial chemoembolization is a specialized “pinhole” technique used by imaging and interventional vascular physicians which involves placing a needle is put into one of your arteries and advancing a tiny catheter advanced into the artery supplying your tumor. Tiny beads coated with a chemotherapy agent are then slowly introduced into the artery blocking off blood flow aas well as delivering chemotherapy. Because the chemotherapy is delivered in a targeted way directly into the liver cancer it is very effective. The liver cancer then shrinks and eyes.

Transarterial chemoembolization is a “pinhole” procedure performed by imaging and interventional specialists whereby a tiny, catheter device is advanced into the artery or artery supplying your liver cancer. Millions of tiny beads coded with chemotherapy agent block the arteries and the chemotherapy agent is released in a targeted wa.. Oftentimes transarterial embolization is used in combination in sequence with other liver cancer treatments such as microwave ablation. The benefits to ttransarterial chemoembolization include
- Minimally invasive “pinhole” procedure
- Speedy recovery
- Targeted treatment of liver cancers.
- Because the therapy is not systemic but targeted high doses of chemotherapy can be directed at the liver cancer
