Date:3/31/2009

rostate using needles that are guided into position by ultrasound and a template or grid through which the needles are inserted to control their spacing. From 50 to more than 100 individual seeds may be placed in a single session, using 10 to 20 needles. The seeds or radiation sources then deliver the dose slowly over the following month.

There are more than 1,200 hospital sites worldwide using approximately 1,700 Varian VariSeed software systems for guiding the placement of permanent prostate seed implants in what is called LDR brachytherapy. Use of this technique alone or in combination with external beam radiotherapy is increasing for patients, including about 60,000, or one third, of U.S. men who are diagnosed annually with prostate cancer.
