Stranded seeds in unique radiation protection magazines
IsoCord® seed chains (strands) contain IsoSeed®
I-125 seeds and hourglass-shaped spacers in standard seed-spacer configuration, enclosed in a braided monofilament suture. IsoCord® strands are delivered in shielded magazines containing up to 70 seeds.
At Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG, the customer can choose between two different sealed source models for prostate cancer treatment: I25.S17plus and I25.S06. Both seed models are visible under X-ray, fluoroscopy, CT, MR and ultrasound.
Low migration rates
One advantage of strands is their low migration rate. IsoCord® strands are specially designed to reduce the migration rates still further. The structured surface of the braided suture, as well as the unique, hourglass-shaped spacers, provide reliable fixation of the IsoCord® strand in prostate tissue.
Strand cutting and needle loading – safe and fast
With the help of the unique IsoCord® Needle Loading Station, IsoCord® is cut into any required length according to the treatment plan. Strand cutting is safe and convenient and takes place under full radiation protection. The IsoCord® Needle Loading Station permits direct loading of the implantation needles in three simple steps avoiding the need to handle strands manually.
