      NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN BRACHYTHERAPY The one major advance that has had the greatest in-fluence on the re-emergence of brachytherapy in recent years has been the introduction of remote afterloaders, which have enabled implants to be given without unnec-essary radiation dose to the radiotherapy and nursing ~djb3/papers/ Intracavitary Brachytherapy •Mammosite •Axxent •Contura •SAVI: Strut Adjusted Volume Implant Mammosite Mammosite Catheter placed in the lumpectomy cavity during procedure.

This is not true in the developed countries, where other sites than cervix such as lung are commonly treated by mHDR brachytherapy because of the high incidence. Other sites where mHDR brachytherapy can be used include oesophagus, Permanent seed brachytherapy involves implanting tiny radioactive seeds into your prostate gland. This is also called low dose rate brachytherapy. Radiation from the seeds destroys cancer cells in the prostate. You may have this treatment on its own or together with external beam radiotherapy or hormone ://

Early brachytherapy procedures involved mainly 2D imaging using orthogonal radiographs where the applicators were reconstructed and a dose distribution relative to this reconstruction was calculated.
