MammoSite® High-Dose Rate (HDR) Radiation Therapy
MammoSite targeted radiation therapy works from inside the breast, directly targeting the area where cancer is most likely to recur. A radiation seed is delivered via a MammoSite balloon catheter as directed by the treatment plan. After each treatment, the seed is removed. No radiation remains in the breast in between treatments. MammoSite spares healthy tissue and organs from the effects of radiation and allows treatment to be completed in just 5 days instead of 5-7 weeks.
