Patient Guide to Prostate Brachytherapy


Prostate Brachytherapy is a form of radiation therapy that’s used to treat prostate cancer.

After you and your urologist have decided to proceed with brachy therapy, a volume study may be needed to accurately determine the size of your prostate; this allows us to customize your seed implant treatment and order the appropriate number of radioactive seeds. This information may be obtained from the prostate ultrasound done when your prostate biopsy was performed.
