Prostate Brachytherapy Treatment

If you are diagnosed with prostate cancer, you may benefit from Low Dose Radiation (LDR) brachytherapy – a minimally invasive procedure in which low dose radioactive implants or “seeds” are placed in your prostate gland to target and eliminate cancer from inside the gland. With brachytherapy there is minimal exposure to the tissue surrounding the prostate. The main advantage of brachytherapy is that it delivers radiation in a localized area, minimizing the radiation dose to surrounding tissues.
