Brachytherapy Systems | October 09, 2013

Esteya electronic brachytherapy by Nucletron, an Elekta company, is a new, high-precision treatment solution for treating skin cancer. Esteya mimics high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy by bringing a miniaturized X-ray source very close to the cancerous site, enabling the local application of radiation for effective treatment. By virtue of this direct delivery, Esteya can concentrate more therapeutic radiation to the disease target and minimize radiation to the surrounding tissues and organs. Notably, Esteya requires only minimal room shielding and features a compact design and exceptional mobility, allowing the treatment to occur virtually anywhere patients are seen. Esteya represents a desirable alternative to surgery, the therapy that patients most commonly select to treat their skin cancer. Esteya features: Patient-friendly design, with a high dose rate that enables treatment delivery in less than three minutes; user-centric operation, offering a highly efficient workflow and easy patient set-up; and attractive economic profile
