Dosimetry study for beta-radiation treatment of in-stent restenosis.


Intravascular brachytherapy (IVBT) has been recognised as a treatment modality for reducing coronary restenosis after angioplasty and stent-implantation procedures. For the treatment of in-stent restenosis using beta-emitter (188)Re, delivering adequate doses to the entire vessel wall is not possible without the potential of overdosing tissues.
