Dosimetric Studies of Brachytherapy Seeds

Our research team studies High Dose Rate (HDR) beta sources in brachytherapy applications, more specifically: Microsphere Brachytherapy for Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) treatment; and eye plaque brachytherapy for Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) treatment. This research branch involves simulation, using the Monte Carlo MCNPX2.6 code, experimental and theoretical approaches.
