Cerenkov Luminescence Imaging for Accurate Placement of Radioactive Plaques in Episcleral Brachytherapy of Intraocular Tumors.

Abstract

PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of using Cerenkov luminescence imaging (CLI) to facilitate plaque placement during episcleral brachytherapy of intraocular tumors. METHODS Ruthenium-106 (Ru-106) decays to rhodium-106, which in turn emits high-energy beta particles. When the electrons propagate through the eyewall, the so… (More)
