Technical note: Check software for use with trans-rectal ultrasound guided I-125 seed prostate implants

Authors


Abstract

In-house software has been developed to enable the dose distribution of a commercial treatment planning system to be verified prior to permanent trans-rectal ultrasound guided I-125 seed implantation of the prostate. Printouts enabling the required loading pattern to be communicated to other staff groups are also generated. This software can be obtained via the authors and the AAPM software exchange (URL: http://aapm.org/medphys/resources/software/index.htm).
