Brachytherapy is a treatment modality where radioactive sources are placed in or near the tumour itself, giving a high radiation dose to the tumour while reducing the radiation exposure in the surrounding healthy tissues. This is ideally suited to the low energy 30 or 50 kVp X-rays generated by the Papillon+ system, which, combined with its high dose produces significantly reduced treatment times.
