In March 2022 the 10th Tri-Country Symposium on Brachytherapy gathered professionals from the medical communities of Germany, Austria and Switzerland in St. Gallen. During this symposium Dr. Jörg S. Zimmermann gave two presentations on prostate seed brachytherapy – On the clinical dose planning and possible combinations with percutaneous radiotherapy.

Prostate Seed Brachytherapy

During this form of prostate cancer therapy, small, radioactive Iodine-125 sources called Seeds are permanently implanted into or next to the tumor. This way a high radiation dose can be delivered to the tumor while reducing damage to healthy tissue, making permanent brachytherapy one of the most tissue-preserving treatment options for early-stage prostate cancer.

His talks are now available with English subtitles on YouTube and right here:
