HDR brachytherapy for vaginal cancer

HDR brachytherapy for vaginal cancer

HDR brachytherapy may be combined with other treatments, such as TomoTherapy® or intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT).

  • High-dose (HDR) brachytherapy is a type of internal radiation therapy that delivers radiation from temporary implants placed close to or inside the tumor(s) in the body.
  • In HDR brachytherapy, radiation beams are precisely targeted, controlling the location and intensity, and offering more precise dose concentration.
  • Radiation exposure to healthy tissue and nearby organs is limited or eliminated, reducing gastrointestinal and sexual function side effects.
