Theranostic application of Lipiodol for transarterial chmoembolization in a VX2 tumor animal model

The most commonly used TACE protocol is based on lipiodol. However, the evidence supporting this technique is more than a decade old and technical advances have meanwhile enabled a more specific TACE with the ability to embolize super-selectively under precision image guidance. Knowledge on lipiodol-based TACE should therefore be updated.


Aim: To establish and validate the role of Lipiodol as a tumor-seeking, theranostic agent and specific imaging biomarker for tumor tissue after transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) in an animal tumor model for liver cancer.
