High-Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy is a form of internal radiation therapy in which a radioactive Source is placed directly into or near a tumor through catheters. By delivering a powerful, precisely-focused dose of radiation directly to a tumor, HDR Brachytherapy reduces damage to nearby healthy tissue and decreases the side effects compared to external beam radiotherapy.

How does HDR Brachytherapy works

Because cancer often affects organs that are essential to daily functioning, it is important for radiation treatment to be tightly focused on tumors to avoid serious side effects.
With a few well-placed catheters, HDR brachytherapy can provide a very precise treatment for cancer in just a few minutes

Advantages of HDR Brachytherapy

Brachytherapy offers a quicker, more effective way to give radiation treatments to some patients. For many cancer types, the entire Brachytherapy treatment takes 1 to 5 days, instead of 5–7 weeks for external beam radiation therapy (EBRT). Depending on the type and stage of cancer, brachytherapy may be combined with other treatments. In many cases, brachytherapy is a promising alternative to surgical removal of a tumor or the affected organ. Cancers such as those of the cervix, breast, bile duct, esophagus, lung (endobronchial), head and neck, and sarcomas can be treated with the help of brachytherapy.
