James R. Stone, (MD, PhD)
[ Dynamic Data - Faculty Directory ]
Dr. Stone is an Assistant Professor within the Division of Interventional Radiology in the Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging. A focus of his clinical practice includes endovascular and percutaneous treatments for primary and metastatic liver cancer. These include performing trans-arterial chemoembolization (TACE), radioembolization with Y90 microspheres, radiofrequency ablation, and irreversible electroporation for the treatment of hepatic malignancy.
In addition, his current clinical research includes serving as Principal Investigator for the Nordion TS-103 multi-center clinical trial exploring Y90 radioembolization + Sorafenib compared with Sorafenib alone for the treatment of HCC.
He also oversees a research laboratory with an increasing emphasis on diagnostic methods and therapeutics for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). His past work includes preclinical evaluation of systemic Sorafenib administration following trans-arterial chemoembolization in a rodent model of hepatocellular carcinoma. Current interests include exploring the role of catheter directed administration of molecular imaging probes for the detection and characterization of hepatic malignancy.
