Systemic chemotherapy has limited therapeutic effect on
pancreatobiliary cancers due to the insufficient drugs
delivered to the tumors. To address this problem, we
successfully developed a technique of using
interventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to guide
intrabiliary agent delivery into pig common bile duct
(CBD) walls with a newly-designed MR compatible
needle-integrated balloon catheter system.
