Contract Notice - Open Procedure
No

Notice Abstract

Gold seed markers are used to improve the accuracy of radiotherapy to the prostate. By implanting 3 gold seeds into the prostate we are able to locate its exact position before radiotherapy is delivered, thereby treating less bladder and rectum and minimising the unwanted side effects. These seeds are identified via X-rays. This allows the radiographers to position the treatment couch in a way that ensures more targeted treatment of the prostate by the radiation beams.
