Brachytherapy

St. Vincent uses High-Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy, which utilizes thin catheters to place the radiation right next to the area requiring radiation treatment.  This enables clinicians to deliver high dose with minimal impact on surrounding healthy tissue.

Brachytherapy has proven to be a highly successful treatment for cancers of the prostate, cervix, endometrium, breast, skin, esophagus, head and neck as well as other types of cancers.
