is devoted to keeping pace with the growing need for better and
more widespread brachytherapy services. Like UroTech's thermotherapy
and lithotripsy services, UroTech delivers top of the line equipment
and expertise to facilities seeking to improve their services for
prostate cancer. We work hand in hand with radiation oncologists,
physicists, and urologists to develop Centers of Excellence for
Localized Control in Prostate Cancer
increased use of the PSA test has led to the diagnosis of cancer
in many younger men who are more likely to have localized prostate
cancer. In determining the best treatment for localized prostate
cancer, brachytherapy has been found to be quite beneficial. The
advanced imaging capabilities now used in brachytherapy allow seed
implantation with better outcomes. The results of five-year studies
have shown clinical success rates similar to surgery. Ten-year data
show radical prostatectomy as slightly superior to brachytherapy.
UroTech consults with
facilities to determine the proper array of equipment and menu of
services needed at each facility. We can provide a full turn-key
solution or efficiently manage a facility's radioactive seed purchasing.
UroTech can deliver any level of service that fits within a facility's
strategy for high-level brachytherapy service.
