Needles, Brachytherapy

Definition : Needles designed for accurate placement of small radioactive sources (seeds) directly into tissues (i.e., brachytherapy procedures). Brachytherapy needles usually include marks (e.g., 0.5 cm apart) and tips that can be easily visualized using ultrasonic imaging equipment (i.e., echogenic tips) to facilitate the procedure. These needles are used in minimally invasive percutaneous procedures to treat cancer tumors, such as prostate, tongue base, and neck cancers.
