MRI, prostate cancer, radiation therapy, vessel sparing, quality of life

Radiation dose is delivered by beams directed from many angles combined with implanted seeds (white spots). By integrating the two types of radiation, the highest dose is delivered only within the tumor. The external beams correct any irregularity from the seeds. Thanks to MRI planning, very little dose goes to critical adjacent structures. Image courtesy of University of Michigan Health System.
