Human Factors in Simulation and Training. Edited by. Dennis A. Vincenzi John A. Wise Mustapha Mouloua Peter A. Hancock. Boca Raton London New . Remote afterloading btachytherapy (RAB) is a medical process used in the treatment of cancer. RAB uses a computer-controlled device to remotely insert and remove radioactive sources, close to a target (or tumour) in the body.
Responsibility often rests with the physicist to implement these advances while maintaining the quality of care. Examples from the past three decades include development of linear accelerator technology, computer imaging, 3-D treatment planning, conformal and dynamic therapy, and remote afterloading brachytherapy. Brachytherapy: Applications and Techniques Phillip M. Devlin MD. Written by the foremost experts in the field, this volume is a comprehensive text and practical reference on contemporary brachytherapy. The book provides detailed, site-specific information on applications and techniques of brachytherapy in the head and neck, central nervous.
HDR brachytherapy treatments deliver doses of more than 12 Gy/hr. As such, HDR brachytherapy treatment usually lasts a few minutes. For its obvious advantages, our interest is toward afterloading delivery. Afterloader units are composed of an encapsulated radioactive source (Ti or stainless steal) at the tip of a stainless steel drive wire.

Brachy is Greek for short distance. Brachytherapy is commonly used as an effective treatment for cervical, prostate, breast, esophageal and skin cancer and can also be used to treat tumours in many other body sites.

Purpose. Brachytherapy by virtue of its characteristics, is the best form of conformal radiation therapy .It has been noted that in a low and medium income country like India, there is huge shortage of basic radiation oncology equipment and manpower , hence the lack of upgraded machines and expertise for conformal teletherapy can easily be by: It covers the scientific principles of brachytherapy and its applications in clinical practice.
The first two sections of the book cover Physics and Radiobiology, while the third section is devoted to the clinical application of the technique in relation to specific tumor sites.
