Background: The steep radiation dose gradients in cervical cancer brachytherapy (BT) necessitate a thorough understanding of the behavior of afterloader source cables or needles in the curved channels of (patient-tailored) applicators. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to develop and validate computer models to simulate: (1) BT source...

In high-dose-rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT) for prostate cancer treatment, interstitial hyperthermia (IHT) is applied to sensitize the tumor to the radiation (RT) dose, aiming at a more efficient treatment. Simultaneous application of HDR-BT and IHT is anticipated to provide maximum radiosensitization of the tumor. With this rationale, the...

The combination of interstitial hyperthermia treatment (IHT) with high dose rate brachytherapy (HDR‐BT) can improve clinical outcomes since it highly enhances the efficiency of cell kill, especially when applied simultaneously. Therefore, we have developed the ThermoBrachy applicators. To effectively apply optimal targeted IHT, treatment...

Brachytherapy is a common treatment in cervical, uterine and vaginal cancer management. The technique is characterised by rapid developments in the fields of medical imaging, dosimetry planning and personalised medical device design. To reduce unnecessary burden on patients, assessments and training of these technologies should preferable be...

We developed a fast and fully-automated, multi-criteria treatment planning workflow for high dose rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT). In this workflow, the patient-CT with catheter reconstructions and dwell positions are imported from the clinical TPS into a novel system for automated dwell time optimisation. The optimised dwell times are then...
