A computerized 3-D brachytherapy treatment planning program has been developed which simulates catheter trajectories, radioisotope seed positioning and percentage dosimetry zones about a catheter/seed array in relationship to CT or MRI images. The high activity 125I seed is used in this program. A visual and a non-linear mathematical optimization program… CONTINUE READING
