Brachytherapy treatment is used to deliver high dose radiation to specifically identifies regions of the body. It is a type of internal radiation treatment, which works from the inside of the body of the patient.
Brachytherapy radiation is administered in the form of an implant or a pill. This implant or a pill is inserted into the targeted tumor locations. The pill or the implant slowly released high dose radiation internally near the site of the tumor, thus killing them off.
The brachytherapy implant or pill possesses radioactive material. It decays over a period of time by itself or may need an intervention to remove it. The decayed implant is usually replaced by a new one in case more radiation is required.
Brachytherapy advantages include delivery of high dose radiation at targeted location, more effectiveness, fewer side effects and high precision and accuracy.
