Brachytherapy is a therapy for cancer patients whereby some radioactive sources are placed inside the patient’s body on permanent or temporary basis in order to fight against and damage the cancer cell DNA. It does not only damage the DNA of cancer cells,but also ceases their ability to divide and grow. It is used by licensed medical physicians for treating cancer patients.This method has overpowered the conventional external beam radiation therapy, because of its ability to take lesser time and allowing the doctor to use higher total dose of radiation to treat a small area. Brachytherapy is often practiced in coalition with chemotherapy, surgery or external radiation therapy. Moreover a patient might be asked by the doctors to undergo ultrasound, chest x ray, CT, MRI and blood tests, etc. prior to the therapy.
