Radioembolization Is a newly developed technique where radioactive particles are delivered to the tumor through bloodstream. The radioactive isotopes will be targeted and show specificity to the tumor cells. This is currently used to treat hepatic carcinoma which is the cancer of the liver cells. This technique is suggested only when the patient cannot be treated with other techniques or methods. This method is still under development.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
