Key Features

Detail Information

Good visibility

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.

  • IsoSeed® I25.S17plus features a full size silver marker and has been designed for visibility under X-ray and fluoroscopic imaging. In addition, it enables MR imaging and opens new perspectives for postoperative planning.
  • IsoSeed® I25.S06 contains a thin gold marker within a ceramic carrier, diminishing artifacts and providing good visibility in CT Imaging.

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.
