PURPOSE The development of commercially available surface applicators using high dose rate remote afterloading devices has enabled radiotherapy centers to treat selected superficial lesions using a remote afterloading brachytherapy unit. The dosimetric parameters of these applicators, the clinical implementation of this technique, and a review of the initial patient treatment regimes are presented. METHODS AND MATERIALS A set of six fixed-diameter (1, 2, and 3 cm), tungsten/steel surface… CONTINUE READING
