Apical-height radiation dosing produces outcomes comparable to conventional 5-mm dosing, with less toxicity in patients with small choroidal melanoma.
Instead of five to six weeks of radiation therapy before surgery, patients with soft tissue sarcoma can receive the treatment in five days, allowing them to undergo cancer resection much sooner.
GammaTile brachytherapy is among the newest additions to the brain tumor armamentarium. Two of our neuro-oncology experts size up its place in therapy.
An animal model of brachytherapy-induced retinopathy would help investigators understand the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms. Cleveland Clinic researchers are creating one, which could eventually help test promising therapeutics.

A patient in whom radiation both cured breast cancer and caused heart disease — necessitating a transplant — presents 25 years after initial radiotherapy with a mass on her left chest wall above her transplanted heart.
The American Brachytherapy Society has published its first consensus statement on the use of electronic brachytherapy, which uses electrically generated X-rays instead of radioactive isotopes. Here’s what you should know.
Adding brachytherapy to external beam radiotherapy appears to improve survival outcomes for men with high-risk prostate cancer.
A sarcoma program uses new techniques and processes that decrease time to treatment in meaningful ways and improve patient care, including providing a preliminary diagnosis within minutes after biopsy.
A Cleveland Clinic study finds low-dose-rate prostate brachytherapy permanent implant monotherapy effective for low-risk and low-intermediate-risk prostate cancer patients, with low toxicity.
Adjunctive intracoronary radiation therapy is a treatment modality that still has value even in the era of drug-eluting stents. Vascular brachytherapy is now an option again at Cleveland Clinic in carefully selected patients.
