Brachytherapy Department is a unit, where patients are treated with brachytherapy - a radiation therapy treatment method, when the radiation source is placed inside or next to the malignant tumor. During brachytherapy, high doses of radiation therapy can be administered directly to the tumor, at the same time protecting healthy tissues and organs from the effect of ionizing radiation.
The Department offers high-dose rate brachytherapy for the following cancer types: gynecological, prostate, skin, head and neck, bronchial, esophagus, liver and soft tissue malignant tumors.
It is planned to resume low dose rate brachytherapy for patients with prostate cancer in the near future.
