Are patients radioactive after the seed implantation?

0

No. Although the seeds are radioactive, patients are not. Because the radioactivity is so low and the placement is so precise, virtually all the radioactivity is absorbed into the prostate. Patients are recommended to avoid prolonged close contact with small children and pregnant women in the first two months after treatment.

No. Although the seeds are radioactive, patients are not. Since the radioactivity has low energy and the placement is so precise, virtually all the radioactivity is absorbed into the prostate. There is no radioactivity in a patient’s blood, sweat, urine and other bodily fluids. There are no issues with contamination.
