The emergence of advanced brachytherapy techniques for common malignancies

Hematol Oncol Clin North Am. 2006 Feb;20(1):97-118. doi: 10.1016/j.hoc.2006.01.008.

Abstract

The recent advent and integration of sophisticated radiation planning and imaging modalities has improved the quality of brachytherapy treatments, allowing for more conformal radiation delivery. Further investigation and follow-up are necessary to demonstrate improvements in outcome and morbidity with these refined approaches.
