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.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
