Details and patient eligibility

About

This is a feasibility study to determine the usefulness of a brachytherapy device that utilizes active components (palladium-103) of standard devices in a novel configuration, which may benefit lung cancer patients by reducing the radiation dose to critical structures, such as the heart wall, while giving a therapeutic dose to diseased tissue, such as at a surgical margin.

CivaSheet Directional LDR Brachytherapy
Experimental group
Description:
FDA Cleared CivaSheet directional Pd-103 Brachytherapy Source is a planar radiation source which utilizes gold shielding in its construction. This device is radioactive on one side only, and is capable of safely delivering high doses of radiation to target areas even when placed directly adjacent to sensitive, healthy tissue or critical structures.
