      Brachytherapy remains an important component of radical radiation therapy in the modern management of cancer. Widespread adoption of remote afterloading now enables brachytherapy to be delivered with minimum exposure to staff and other patients. Technical advances in imaging and computing power have improved the precision of implantation and complex dosimetry can now be .

    The Interstitial Brachytherapy can be used as supplement or boost to the prostate gland while sparing surrounding normal tissue of rectum and bladder. The boost dose by this technique is likewise higher than by standard external radiation and thus higher chance of tumor eradication/10(9). High-Dose-Rate Interstitial Brachytherapy as Monotherapy in One Fraction for the Treatment of Favorable Stage Prostate Cancer. By Pedro J. Prada. Submitted: April 23rd Reviewed: July 20th Published: January 16th DOI: /Cited by: 1.

    Objective: To report technique and experience of high-dose-rate (HDR) interstitial brachytherapy in the treatment of cervical carcinoma and other gynecologic malignancies. Material and Method: Between April and October , ten patients (7-cervical carcinoma, 3-vaginal stump carcinoma) were treated with interstitial implant.   In we reported on a small pilot series of patients treated with HDR interstitial brachytherapy using catheters implanted into vertebral or paraspinal lesions in the intraoperative setting under direct visualization, or percutaneously using image guidance. The five patients had all previously received at least two and up to four courses of.

Interstitial Brachytherapy. Interstitial brachytherapy (IBT) is the oldest of the APBI techniques 40–43 and has the most mature data regarding efficacy and toxicity. However, significant disadvantages of IBT include the relatively complex technique associated with a steep learning curve that requires a high level of expertise and dedicated.

Since40 patients with a T1/T2 bladder cancer have been treated at ARTI with interstitial brachytherapy via laparoscopy. Under general anaesthesia, the tumour area is implanted under cystoscopic control with the aid of a laparoscope, and instruments are attached to the Da Vinci robot. Mapping is then done via a simulator photo and a CT by: 7.

Brachytherapy is a type of radiation treatment for cancer. It involves inserting a radioactive source, referred to as a “seed” into or near the cancer. Intracavity brachytherapy involves placing radioactive seeds inside a natural body cavity.
