Internal radiation therapy, or brachytherapy, treats cancer by placing tiny radioactive sources or seeds into the body, either directly into or next to the area requiring treatment. This enables clinicians to deliver a high dose of radiation with a minimal impact on the surrounding healthy tissue. Brachytherapy is generally an effective treatment option for many cancers of the prostate, cervix, endometrium, breast, skin, bronchus, oesophagus and head and neck, as well as soft-tissue sarcomas and other cancer types. Varian produces a full range of brachytherapy products, including afterloaders, applicators and treatment-planning software.
