Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fiducial markers and brachytherapy.

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided needle placement of small radiopaque particles paves the way for EUS-guided fiducial markers and brachytherapy. Stereotactic body radiation therapy relies on image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), permitting escalation of radiation dose to tumors while minimizing dose to normal tissues. Fiducial markers are radiopaque… (More)
