The Sirtex satellite symposium was held during IHPBA 2016 (São Paulo) on Saturday 23rd April from 13:15 to 14:15. The objective of the symposium was to explore the evidence for how SIR-Spheres Y-90 resin microspheres can be used as a therapy to enable more patients with inoperable liver tumours to receive liver surgery. 

The symposium is divided into 6 presentations which were led by expert chairs and faculty.  All of the experts below will be available to contribute to the discussion and answer questions, so please do take part.
