BRACHYTHERAPY: A REVIEW

MANDEEP DAHIYA.

Abstract
Brachytherapy is gaining importance in clinical oncology for the local therapy of solid tumors due to high radiation doses presented to malignant tissues, and at the same time keeping the whole body radiation burden low. Some major restrictions are associated with its implementation, including the need of complicated procedures for device placement and removal. Brachytherapy devices have rendered promising results in preclinical and clinical studies. Induction of novel delivery devices permits the treatment of more tangled tumor sites, with a broad spectrum of dose rate for improving treatment efficacy and deduction of side effects. An improved realization about the safety, efficacy and exactness of these systems is required, and further advancement of new techniques is warranted. The aim of this paper is to present the fundamentals of brachytherapy techniques along with the most important studies that endorse their effectiveness in the treatment of various cancers.

Key words: Balloon, Brachytherapy, Catheter, High dose, Low dose, Seed
