Whilst low, medium, and high dose rate techniques are covered, emphasis is placed on high dose rate afterloading techniques which are likely to replace most other forms of brachytherapy in the future.

ABOUT THE SERIES: Radiotherapy remains the major non-surgical treatment modality for the management of malignant disease. In Japan, remote afterloading system (RALS) with high-dose rate intracavitary therapy has been recognized as an effective and safe treatment modality for carcinoma of.

High-dose-rate (HDR) afterloading brachytherapy has been utilized in the treatment of uterine cervix cancer since the decade ofbut it was introduced in Brazil in the s (1,2).

The curative potential of radiation therapy in the management of carcinoma of the cervix is greatly enhanced by the use of intracavitary brachytherapy 1, 2, 3, success of brachytherapy requires the delivery of a high radiation dose directly to the tumor while sparing, to some degree, the surrounding normal tissues.

Abstract. Fractionated short-term afterloading with high dose rates (HDR) prevents the risk of radiation exposure to the staff, facilitates an optimization of dose distribution in space, makes the treatment modalities easier for the patients and hospital, and allows a considerable increase of treatment capacity without additional need of staff or capital.

Urban and Schwarzenberg, Munich, p Google Scholar. Introduction. Radiation has been used successfully to treat cervical cancer for nearly a century. Standard therapy consists of carefully planned, high energy external beam radiotherapy combined with low dose rate (LDR) experienced hands, combined total doses to the paracentral point in the range of 75–95 Gy can be delivered relatively safely, leading to cure rates as high.

Background and purpose: High dose rate (HDR) remote afterloading intracavitary brachytherapy is an effective treatment modality which has some advantages over low dose rate (LDR) techniques for gynaecological zation is one of the possibilities of modern brachytherapy techniques, especially the stepping source technology.

The use of the term ‘optimization’ implies. INTRODUCTION. The incidence of carcinoma of the uterine cervix in Korea is decreasing, but still the third most common malignant neoplasm in women ().Radiotherapy is the treatment of choice in patients with an advanced cancer of the uterine cervix, and normally consists of a combination of external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) and intracavitary brachytherapy.

The present trend in brachycurietherapy for gynecological malignancies, from conventional methods to the afterloading technique, offers undeniable advantages with respect to labor-saving and radiation protection, particularly when applying high dose rates, and.

Brachytherapy is a form of radiotherapy where a sealed radiation source is placed inside or next to the area requiring treatment. Brachy is Greek for short. Brachytherapy is commonly used as an effective treatment for cervical, prostate, breast, esophageal and skin cancer and can also be used to treat tumours in many other body sites.

Brachytherapy as a form of treatment for gynecological tumors has been used for a long time in Brazil (since ) and can be considered as a form of radiotherapy treatment.

High Dose Rate (HDR) brachytherapy aims at delivering high dose rates of radiation in restricted volumes of the body, thereby increasing disease control and lower treatment toxicity for adjacent normal tissues.High-dose rate implants: In this type of brachytherapy, the radiation source is left in place for just 10 to 20 minutes at a time and then taken out.

You may have treatment twice a day for 2 to 5 days or once a week for 2 to 5 weeks. The schedule depends on your type of cancer.
