Radioactive Implants (brachytherapy)

Brachytherapy in Northwest Ohio


Brachytherapy is an advanced cancer treatment that involves implanting radioactive substances or material directly into an organ or cavity to provide high doses of x-rays which target cancer cells. Radioactive seeds, or sources, are placed directly in or near the tumor itself, giving a radiation dose to the tumor while reducing radiation exposure to the surrounding health tissues.

The delivery of brachytherapy typically requires a team of medical specialists pulled together based on where the treatment needs to be delivered.

This radioactive implant treatment, and other treatment services, is available to our patients in the Toledo and surrounding communities.
