Figure 10 (A-F): Transarterial embolization for tumor bleed. A 54-year-old male suffering for inoperatble carcinoma tongue presented with persistent tumor bleed in spite of receiving hemostatic radiotherapy. (A) Plain, (B) postcontrast axial T1W images show a large enhancing lesion (white arrow) in the tongue. (C) Axial, (D) Sagittal cone beam CT images of the lingual artery (dotted arrow) angiogram confirms tumor blush (white arrow). (E) Lingual artery angiogram shows tumor blush (black arrow), which was embolized. (F) Postembolization angiogram shows significant reduction in the tumor blush with cessation of the tumor bleed.
