ThermoBrachytherapy Surface Applicators
Company : Bionix Development Corp
UMDC Code : 178303
The ThermoBrachytherapy Surface Applicator (TBSA) is a new cancer treatment device. It is a surface-conforming applicator that combines hyperthermia (heat) and high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy radiation treatments. Initially targeted to treat patients with chestwall recurrence of breast cancer (CWR), this device is capable of treating large areas of superficial disease that are very difficult to treat with currently available devices. By creating applicators of varying shapes and sizes, the TBSA will deliver more controllable and conformable doses of both heat and radiation. Clinicians will be able to accomplish in one treatment what previously required multiple treatment fields for both hyperthermia and external beam radiotherapy.
