Radiation Oncological Solutions

While much has been made of the fact that new techniques in surgical intervention have resulted in the minimization of treatment side effects, we should remember that radiation therapy was utilized as a treatment for prostate cancer well before the introduction of surgery. Equally important is the fact that many effective advances have also been made in the use of radiation therapy.

These advances have evolved into two very different approaches and techniques in treating prostate cancer:

External Beam, which includes traditional external therapy (XBRT), conformal beam therapy, 3D conformal beam, proton and neutron beam

Interstitial Radiation Therapy, synonymous for brachytherapy, seed implantation
