Brachytherapy Technologies

Brachytherapy comes from the word “brachy” or “close” – and it is a close therapy as the radiation itself, usually from a radioactive source or isotope, is placed directly into the body, either in the form of radioactive seeds, injectable radiations, or even those that can be swallowed. The most common forms of brachytherapy today are prostate seed implants, or intravenous radiation for cancers such as Xofigo (Radium-223) or Pluvicto (Lutetium-177 based).
