Your GP or oncologist will need to refer you to Dr Brian Stedman for one of the interventional oncology procedures.  If you have up-to-date scans or imaging these will be reviewed by the appropriate multi-disciplinary team (MDT). If your imaging is not up to date you will need to have a dedicated liver MRI or a CT angiogram. These can be arranged for you through the interventional oncology office.

Once your scans are available, your case will be referred to the most appropriate MDT who will review your case and determine the most suitable course of treatment for you. This may be one of the interventional oncology procedures available or it may be for surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment.

The decision from the MDT will be communicated either through a clinical appointment, letter or telephone call depending on your circumstances.

Following your interventional oncology procedure you may be required to attend a number of follow-up appointments. These will be detailed to you following your discharge from hospital.

If you would like to speak to someone about the referral pathway or you would like to arrange your MRI or CT angiogram, please contact the interventional oncology office on 02380 764352.
