Brachytherapy physics 2030 – Enhanced application and in-vivo treatment verification
The use of complex techniques and in-vivo treatment verification in brachytherapy is expanding. In this symposium, the current status of customized applicator, and treatment plan creation will first be reviewed. Then electromagnetic tracking technology, its limitations and potential benefits, and current clinical use will be discussed. After this, the benefits, current practical challenges, and clinical applications of in-vivo source tracking with point dosimeters will be reviewed. The session will conclude with an overview of in-vivo source tracking with imaging panels and fluoroscopy, a discussion of published literature, results from phantom studies, and the current state of the technology.
