Tips for buying Brachytherapy System

  1. Brachytherapy radiation systems deliver the radioactive source accurately and safely.
  2. With a high dose-rate brachytherapy system, safety is especially important; there must be some form of emergency source retraction.
  3. Beneficial features of brachytherapy systems are those enhancing accuracy.
  4. Small radioactive seeds that can be reliably delivered to the desired location with a minimal chance for error enhances accuracy.
  5. The remote afterloading brachytherapy systems are better than external beam radiotherapy units, because 3-7-day treatment delivery does not allow the significant proliferation of tumor cells that often occurs with the longer treatment required for external beam therapy.
  6. Remote afterloader brachytherapy systems apply the highest concentration of radiation directly within the tumor, and therefore normal tissue is not exposed to as much radiation.
  7. When using these brachytherapy systems, the dose distribution and source dwell times can be programmed to fit the tumor's geometry.
  8. Buyers debating between an HDR and an LDR system should consider the fewer side effects and greater cure rates associated with HDR units, as well as the benefits of low staff radiation exposure risks, early investment returns, and reduced hospital costs that these outpatient therapy units offer.
  9. These brachytherapy radiation systems usually require walls consisting of 4 cm of lead or 35 cm of concrete shielding. They can also be placed in an existing shielded room designed for a cobalt radiotherapy unit or a linear accelerator.
  10. Buyers should remember to change their NRC license to cover the radioactive sources used in brachytherapy.
  11. Facilities need to ensure that the brachytherapy system treatment suite includes rooms for endoscopic, telemetry, oximeters, patient recovery, and computerized treatment planning.
