Evidence-based recommendations on selective internal radiation therapy for non-resectable colorectal metastases in the liver.

Is this guidance up to date?

We checked this guidance in July 2019 and we are updating it. See the guideline in development page for progress on the update.

Guidance development process

How we develop NICE interventional procedures guidance

Coding recommendations

J12.3 Selective internal radiotherapy with microspheres to lesion of liver

X65.3 Delivery of a fraction of interstitial radiotherapy

Y36.4 Introduction of non-removable radioactive substance into organ for brachytherapy NOC

Y89.- Brachytherapy (where necessary)

Y53.4 Approach to organ under fluoroscopic control

In addition the ICD-10 code C78.7 Secondary malignant neoplasm of liver and intrahepatic bile duct and a code from category C18.- Malignant neoplasm of colon would be recorded.

This guidance replaces NICE interventional procedures guidance on selective internal radiation therapy for colorectal metastases in the liver (IPG93).
