Webinar overview:
Join Radiation Oncologist Dr Joseph Bucci and Urologist Dr David Malouf as they discuss the advances in LDR Brachytherapy treatment and what you need to consider to feel confident in your treatment choice.

Brachytherapy treatment for prostate cancer has advanced significantly in recent years, with the advent of things such as 4D brachytherapy technology and new evidence on the effectiveness of low dose rate treatments. Precision systems have also helped to minimise side-effects and improve patient outcomes. So, is brachytherapy right for you, and what factors do you need to consider to feel confident in your treatment choice?

This webinar is proudly sponsored by BXT Accelyon.

For anyone who may not be able to register for the webinar live, the Webinar recording will be available on the PCFA YouTube Channel and the PCFA Online Community video section.

For additional resources on radiation therapy as a treatment for prostate cancer you can access the PCFA resource “Understanding Radiation for prostate cancer treatment” HERE.
