Description
A new scanning system using a NaI(Tl) scintillation survey meter, copper slit and drive-unit has been
developed for quality control of radioactive seeds. Radioactive seed implants, also called brachytherapy, are
widely used modality in the treatment of early stage prostate cancers. Seeds containing the iodine-125 are most
commonly used for permanent implant prostate brachytherapy. These seeds are commercially available and
delivered in a sterile environment in the form of packaged cartridge. It is impractical to re-sterilize and re-load
seeds after calibration. This paper describes a new method to calibrate all seeds in the seed cartridge in a sterile
package.
