A new method to reduce the side effects of Ocular Brachytherapy
- This nanotechnology reduces the radiation dose for an effective treatment
- Increasing the array of tumors capable to treat by standard Brachytherapy
The present technology may involve a radical change in the evolution patients suffering from uveal melanoma. It has been designed to protect the healthy eye structures from ionizing radiation, so that adequate treatment doses may be applied with less risk and severity of side effects. This technology will increase the array of tumors capable to treat by standard brachytherapy.
