Many patients with such cancers can be effectively treated with brachytherapy, or internal radiotherapy.
The global market for brachytherapy reached US$ 680 million in 2013, of which the High-Dose Rate (HDR) and LDR segments accounted for 70%.
Moreover, brachytherapy usage rate decreased from 83 percent in 1988 to 58 percent in 2009.
Image-guided brachytherapy involves delivering radiotherapy to the tumour by placing a radioactive source in an applicator, positioned internally in the tumour region.
In contrast, brachytherapy is capable of safely delivering much higher doses of radiation than EBRT (Fig.
Ciezki and colleagues examined the records of 137,427 men over age 65 with prostate cancer treated with surgery, EBRT, or brachytherapy.
Trevor Morris, a retired police officer, decided to pay to have brachytherapy privately in Guildford.
She said: "We are currently fighting Mr Galvin's case for him to be treated in Leeds, where brachytherapy is offered now.
START was a double-blind, international multicenter trial in which 476 patients were randomized to brachytherapy using the Novoste beta radiation system or to sham brachytherapy following successful angioplasty for in-stent restenosis.
Theragenics, a medical device company serving the surgical products and prostate cancer treatment markets and their customers will now have access to Oncura's OncoSeed[TM] RAPID Strand[TM], and Thin Seed[TM] prostate brachytherapy products, as well as BrachyStrand[TM] and BrachyMESH[TM] lung brachytherapy products.
Two forms of prostate brachytherapy are commonly used in Canada: (1) low-dose rate (LDR), where iodine-125 seeds are permanently implanted into the prostate; and (2) high-dose rate (HDR), where a single iridium-192 source is passed by remote control along temporarily implanted catheters.
Mr Galvin, who lives in Penarth, was told he was a suitable candidate for low-dose brachytherapy after he was diagnosed with a small prostate tumour in March 2006.
