Loose Seeds for Prostate Cancer Treatment
IsoSeed® characterizes two well-established sealed source models to treat prostate cancer effectively.
IsoSeed® I-125 for Prostate Cancer Treatment
These seeds are intended for the permanent treatment of localized prostate cancer. They are delivered as sterile loose IsoSeeds or loaded in Mick® Magazines and are implanted using needles.
Implantation with the Mick® TP/TPV Applicator
Each Mick® Magazine has a capacity of 15 IsoSeeds. With the Mick® TP/TPV Applicator, IsoSeed® can be implanted in any desired seed spacing distance, thus allowing a geometrically unrestricted seed distribution.
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.
