Dr. Theodore H. Schwartz and Dr. A. Gabriella Wernicke Achieve Breakthrough Use of Cesium-131 for Intracavitary Brachytherapy in Malignant Brain Tumor

Intracavitary brachytherapy is a minimally invasive technique used to line a surgical cavity with radioactive seeds — cancer-fighting radioisotopes encased in capsules the size of a rice grain — after removal of malignant disease. This procedure delivers high-dose radiation to the tumor cavity margin to prevent recurrence of microscopic disease in patients with malignant brain tumors.
