Who can receive radioactive seed implant (brachytherapy)?

0

Prostate brachytherapy is the oldest radiation therapy technique for the treatment of prostate cancer. When it was first used to treat prostate cancer, preloaded radium needles were inserted into the prostate and left in the gland for a period of time. Recent advances in prostate brachytherapy have made it another “gold standard” for treating prostate cancer. Prostate seed implant can be used alone for definitive therapy, or it can be used as a boost treatment after external beam irradiation.
