Permanent seed implants are a form of low-dose interstitial brachytherapy The isotope used is Iodine-125. These small seeds (1mm x 5mm) are inserted in the prostate, where they remain while radioactively decaying.

Permanent seed implants are used as monotherapy in cases of prostate tumours with a high probability of being limited to the prostate, without any need to combine it with external radiotherapy or hormone therapy. Permanent implants are ideal in these cases as they are inserted in a day-hospital environment, the patient being discharged within a few hours after the implant is performed.
