Interstitial / Intracavitary Brachytherapy For Cervical Cancer

Brachytherapy is a boon of medical science for patients having cervical cancer.

And it needs deep knowledge and extensive equipment for this treatment to be successful.

During intracavitary/Interstitial brachytherapy for cervical cancer treatment, an applicator with few tubes is placed within patient’s tumour and is later loaded with radiation source to give high focused radiation dose.

Brachytherapy for cervical cancer treatment has been a boon for the patients because of the following reasons:

  • This technique uses high radiation only on the tumor and only small radiation is applied to the rest of the body.
  • Without brachytherapy, treatment of cervical cancer remains incomplete.
  • It does not have as much side effect as other treatment methods of cancer, as only the part where the tumor exits are kept under high radiation.

So, these are some of the salient features of this gifted technique of medical science for the treatment of cervical cancer.
