Brachytherapy Applicators, Manual, Interstitial/Intracavitary

Definition : Manual brachytherapy applicators designed to deliver therapeutic radioactive sources to, retrieve them from, and/or hold them inside tissue (i.e., interstitial) and/or natural or surgically created body cavities (i.e., intracavitary). These applicators typically include hollow needles, catheters, and/or cannulae and are frequently configured for use according to the treatment site within the body (e.g., brain, bladder, biliary ducts, breast). Some applicators include a catheter with a balloon at the tip that is left in a surgical cavity for introduction of solid radioactive sources (i.e., seeds) after surgery. Interstitial/intracavitary manual brachytherapy applicators are typically used to treat malignant tumors in internal tissue and/or organs.
