Yttrium-90 (Y90) Glass Microspheres PET/CT in Imaging Patients With Liver Tumors

This clinical trial studies how well yttrium-90 (Y90) glass microspheres positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) works in imaging patients with liver tumors . Images produced by PET/CT may provide better information about the distribution of particles, such as Y90 glass microspheres, delivered for selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) as compared to regular medical care images useing technetium Tc-99m albumin-aggregated single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT images.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
