Regarding also the challenge to identically repeat the two catheterisations, especially when the tip has to be set close to a bifurcation or a small branch, the future could be in tracking the microspheres’ deposition during the catheterisation (see Bremsstrahlung SPECT chapter). 5 SPECT/CT-Based Dose-Response Studies Garin et al.  performed a dose-response retrospective study in 36 patients for HCC treated with 90Y-loaded glass microspheres. The absorbed doses to liver and tumours were assessed using the 99mTc-MAA SPECT/CT performed within 1–2 weeks before the therapy and iteratively reconstructed with attenuation and with dual-energy windows scatter correction.
