Early brachytherapy procedures involved mainly 2D imaging using orthogonal radiographs where the applicators were reconstructed and a dose distribution relative to this reconstruction was calculated. 19 Using this technique, it was difficult to calculate and impossible to know the dose to the tumour exactly, as soft-tissue visualization is poor HDR Interstitial Brachytherapy - Prostate There are many ways to plan and deliver HDR prostate interstitial brachytherapy, and many different dosing schemes.

With CT (computed tomography) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), SPECT and PET (tomography using gamma radiation and positron-irradiated nuclides), and ultrasound diagnostics, the anatomic basis for individual dose planning brachytherapy is added.
Therefore, cervix is the commonest site treated by mHDR brachytherapy in developing countries. This is not true in the developed countries, where other sites than cervix such as lung are commonly treated by mHDR brachytherapy because of the high incidence.
Other sites where mHDR brachytherapy can be used include oesophagus, Permanent seed brachytherapy involves implanting tiny radioactive seeds into your prostate gland.
