We have many years experience with High-Dose Rate (HDR) and Low-Dose Rate (LDR) brachytherapy. This includes treatment for the prostate, breast, and gynecological cancers. Advanced Medical Physics, Inc. can provide routine and periodic services for many different types of systems as well as provide consultations for planning and equipment procurement.
Recently, we have started implementing electronic brachytherapy treatments in the state of Texas. Electronic brachytherapy (EBT) uses a miniaturized x-ray source that can be turned on or off, instead of the traditional radioactive seeds that are always emitting radiation. This means that the shielding and state licensing requirements are minimal, and your radiation therapy team is able to remain in the treatment room with you. Because it is a short procedure with minimal side effects, ebx is an ideal treatment for skin and endometrial cancer patients, not interested in surgery.
