PURPOSE The preplanned technique used for permanent prostate brachytherapy has limitations that may be overcome by intraoperative planning. The goal of the American Brachytherapy Society (ABS) project was to assess the current intraoperative planning process and explore the potential for improvement in intraoperative treatment planning (ITP). METHODS AND MATERIALS Members of the ABS with expertise in ITP performed a literature review, reviewed their clinical experience with ITP, and explored… CONTINUE READING
