PURPOSE The purpose of this investigation is to determine the mechanism of seed migration after prostate implant and to develop procedures to minimize the risk of seed migration. METHODS AND MATERIALS Radioactivity survey of prostate cancer patients after permanent brachytherapy with (125)I to detect pulmonary seed embolization is routinely performed using a seed migration detector. The seed migration detector is made from a low-energy, high-sensitivity scintillation survey meter by adding a… CONTINUE READING
