Fig. 1

An example case of transarterial marker implantation for pancreatic tail cancer. a Pre-procedural dynamic contrast-enhanced (CE) CT was performed to reveal the tumor location (marked by white arrow). b A microcatheter is inserted into the artery branch near the target cancer and angio-CT is performed to determine the location of the microcatheter tip (white arrow) relative to the target cancer. Residual contrast media injected in the previous angiography also appears on this image. c, d Post-procedural angiogram of the implanted fiducial marker (black arrow; 2 pieces of 5-mm-long straight embolization microcoils with a 0.018-inch diameter)
