What is it used for?
HDR (High Dose Rate) brachytherapy for prostate cancer is usually used in combination with external conformal radiotherapy and/or hormone-therapy treatment. It may also be used as rescue treatment for cases where the tumor has relapsed after radical prostatectomy, external radiotherapy or seed implant.
In cases of breast cancer it is used as a boost treatment after external radiotherapy or as an exclusive treatment in certain cases.
This technique can also be used in gynecological treatments and other locations.
