From: Heterogeneity of microsphere distribution in resected liver and tumour tissue following selective intrahepatic radiotherapy

  Liver lobe
Left Right
Mass (mg) 15 ≤ m ≤ 26 54 ≤ m ≤ 104 49 ≤ m ≤ 73 76 ≤ m ≤ 90
m ¯ (mg) 21 75 60 82
n 16 16 9 9
Spheres ¯ /biopsy 1,500 3,000 1,100 980
A ¯ / m ¯ (Bq/mg) 3,600 2,000 910 610
CV 0.49 0.75 0.66 0.51
SK −0.46 0.82 1.0 0.64
  1. CV, coefficient of variation; m ¯ , mean mass of n tissue biopsies; Spheres ¯ /biopsy, average number of spheres per biopsy; A ¯ / m ¯ , mean activity concentration; SK, skew of the distribution.
