Brachytherapy is the placement of radioactive sources, or “seeds,” in close proximity to the tumors, or sometimes directly into the tissues. Brachytherapy is delivered in two ways. With high-dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy, the radioactive sources are placed only temporarily. Or, with low-dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy, the seeds may be left in place permanently. The type used depends upon your cancer.
