    SIRT - is that internal radiation?  I have a sister who is about to start that treatment for cervical cancer

    Fingers crossed!

    Checked on google! 
    SIRT stands for selective internal radiation therapy

    I have read up on it and will be getting my mapping done this Friday if my PET shows I am a suitable candidate. Apparently it's been used in bowel cancer patients for a while but is still a relatively new procedure for BC patients.
