Drug Eluting Beads

The cover of JADPRO Magazine is illustrated by Alex Baker on the treatment of Liver Cancer.

Alex's medical art illustrates chemoembolus for liver cancer where drug eluting beads are introduced into a feeder artery to a hepatocellular carcinoma tumour via the hepatic artery. The beads both block off blood supply to the growing tumour and deliver chemotherapy drugs right to the place where it's needed.
