radiation oncologyBRACHYTHERAPY UNIT
We have a brachytherapy unit of high and low-dose-rate radiation therapy for patients with cancer.
This technique consists of implanting radioactive material directly on or near the tumour, which allows a higher dosage to be used in smaller areas and thus reduce the treatment exposure time.
The low-dose-rate (LDR) implants remain in the body for hours or days, while high-dose-rate (HDR) implants stay in the body for only a few minutes during each treatment.
Currently there are more than 20 active protocols applicable to different types of tumours, highlighting its role in the treatment tumours and soft-tissue sarcomas.
