Apolo; Missarelli, P. Abstract: Objective: We analyze the gynecologycal high dose rate brachytherapy dosimetry using the Fletcher-Suit-Delclos device, comparing orthogonal films anteroposterior and lateral versus axial computarized tomography. Methods: 4 implants were analized with orthogonal films and axial computarized tomography in the Brachyhterapy Unit of the National Cancer Institute on February The bladder, rectal and vaginal dose point were evaluated according to international specifications.
The target volumen included was underestimated with the classical orthogonal film dosimetry. Conclusions: The orthogonal film dosimetry shows smaller accuracy than axial computarized tomography. The target volumens were not satisfactorily covered by the prescribed isodosis curve. However, users may print, download, or email articles for individual use. This abstract may be abridged.

High-dose rate brachytherapy in Brazil. A braquiterapia de alta taxa de dose foi introduzida em nosso meio em janeiro de High-dose rate brachytherapy was first introduced in Brazil in January Significant changes in the management of malignant neoplasms were observed since utilization of high-dose rate brachytherapy. The high number of gynecological patients awaiting for brachytherapy also decreased during this period. In the first ten years 26, patients were treated with high-dose rate brachytherapy. In this study we present the number and profile of the patients treated with high-dose rate brachytherapy as well as the distribution of these patients in the Brazilian territory, proving the benefit of the use of high-dose rate brachytherapy in Brazil.
