Abstract

Prostate cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in the western world, accounting for nearly 30% of all male malignancies. Radiation treatment of such cancer has high success rates, and depends primarily on the physician’s ability to deliver a conformal therapeutic dose to the tumour. This involves a process of treatment planning, brachytherapy implantation, and post-implant dosimetric verification.
