Tests & Treatments

  • Chemoembolization
    The purpose of chemoembolization is to inject chemotherapy drugs into the hepatic artery that supplies blood to the tumor in the liver. The artery is then often embolized – or blocked off – with tiny particles.

  • Immunoembolization
    If you have been diagnosed with a melanoma of the eye that has spread to the liver, our physicians developed this novel therapy to improve survival in ocular melanoma patients with liver metastases.

  • Radioembolization
    If you have primary or metastatic cancer that has spread to the liver, the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson is one of the few hospitals in the region to offer radioembolization as a treatment to shrink the tumors.
