An advanced approach to performing seed implants
The key to delivering quality prostate brachytherapy is placing the sources where you need them and keeping them there. The SOURCECAP® Bioabsorbable endcaps are designed to maximize resistance to movement while being compatible with your current delivery techniques. SOURCECAP® endcaps can be utilized with either BrachySource® Iodine or THERASEED® Palladium implants, and can be used with your exisiting applicators or be custom loaded in needles.Features and Specifications
