The pioneering brachytherapy therapy is one of the most significant advances in internal radiation therapy in 20 years.
Selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) or trans-arterial radio-embolisation using Y-90-labelled microspheres is a treatment option for patients with unresectable primary and secondary liver malignancies.
In addition, patients at smaller facilities were more likely to receive only external beam radiation therapy rather than a combination of external and internal radiation therapy in the form of implants or brachytherapy.
Radiation may be given from a machine located outside the body (external radiation therapy), or radioactive material -may be placed inside the body (internal radiation therapy).
On the basis of treatment, the global radiotherapy market includes X-ray, gamma ray, external beam radiotherapy, proton therapy, and internal radiation therapy. The external beam radiotherapy segment is further sub-segmented into 3D conformal radiation therapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image guided radiation therapy (IGRT), tomotherapy, stereotactic radio surgery, and stereotactic body radiation therapy.

Selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) or transarterial radio-embolisation using Y-90-labelled microspheres aims to selectively target radiation to all liver tumours while limiting the dose to normal liver parenchyma.
