Brachytherapy

View this topic in
Brachytherapy (from the Greek word βραχυς brachys, meaning "short-distance"), also known as internal radiotherapy, sealed source radiotherapy, curietherapy or endocurietherapy, is a form of radiotherapy where a radiation source is placed inside or next to the area requiring treatment.

2018 7th IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics (Biorob)

The RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics - BioRob 2018 - is a joint effort of the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation - RAS - and Engineering in Medicine and Biology - EMBS.BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a "biomechatronic" point of view, trying to understand the scientific and engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave and interact can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems for many different applications; and to develop novel nano, micro-, macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation.

The impact of seed localization uncertainties on predicting I<sup>125</sup> prostate brachytherapy dose distributions

P. Lindsay; J. Battista; J. Van Dyk Proceedings of the 22nd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (Cat. No.00CH37143), 2000

The purpose of this work is to quantify the dosimetric effect of two types of uncertainty in permanent prostate brachytherapy implants: failure to (1) image or (2) precisely localize all the seeds implanted. Both of these aspects are due to limitations of current imaging technology. An idealized pre-plan as well as clinical post-implant data for I-125 were used in this ...


Modular Software Design for Brachytherapy Image-Guided Robotic Systems

Ivan Buzurovic; Tarun K. Podder; Lei Fu; Yan Yu 2010 IEEE International Conference on BioInformatics and BioEngineering, 2010

Modular software design is a technique that increase reusability and portability of software composed from separate parts, called modules. We have designed and developed a reusable integrated software solution for robotic prostate brachytherapy procedure. The application is capable of concurrent handling of all aspects of the image-guided brachytherapy procedure: ultrasound image acquisition, anatomic delineation, target modeling, dosimetry planning and analysis, ...


A HIFU robot for transperineal treatment of prostate cancer

Ng Choong Kheng; Ng Wan Sing; L. Phee; C. Cheng 7th International Conference on Control, Automation, Robotics and Vision, 2002. ICARCV 2002., 2002

Prostate cancer accounts for 29% of all cancers diagnosed in males in the United States. Present therapeutic procedures for prostate cancer are either invasive or minimally invasive. However, recent advances in technology (e.g. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)) allow the possibility of also non- invasive therapeutic procedures. This paper describes localizing the position of the prostate using an ultrasound probe. ...

K. Ammer Proceedings of the First Joint BMES/EMBS Conference. 1999 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology 21st Annual Conference and the 1999 Annual Fall Meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society (Cat. N, 1999

Thermal images of 154 hands were studied to show that patients suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome or carpal tunnel syndrome can be differentiated from healthy subjects by the occurrence of a thermal asymmetry between the index and the little finger. A temperature difference between these fingers higher than 0.5°C was regarded as a pathological finding. With respect to clinical, neurographic ...

A. Fenster; C. Blake; D. B. Downey IMTC/99. Proceedings of the 16th IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference (Cat. No.99CH36309), 1999

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men in North America. Although 2D transrectal ultrasound imaging is widely used for the evaluation of prostate disease it suffers from limitations that limit its use in diagnosis and therapy of prostate cancer. The outcome of a 2D-ultrasound guided minimally invasive procedure depends on the skill and expertise of the operator ...
