Nucletron, ABS and Texas Cancer Clinic Sponsor Brachytherapy Fellowship

July 7, 2008 – Nucletron said today it has formed a partnership with the American Brachytherapy Society (ABS) and Texas Cancer Clinic to sponsor the HDR Fellowship Experience, a clinical and didactic training program for residents.

Participants in the HDR Fellowship Experience are exposed to the depth and breadth of the uses of HDR brachytherapy in order to stimulate interest in further training and skill development for implementation of this versatile modality into future clinical practice, said Nucletron.

The program is being conducted at the Texas Cancer Clinic, a free-standing, privately-owned, 30,000-square-foot multidisciplinary outpatient cancer center located in San Antonio, TX, and the winner of Outpatient Care Technology's 2007 No. 1 Outpatient Cancer Clinic in the Country award.

Each one-week rotation of the HDR Fellowship Experience includes one-on-one time with the clinicians and physicists, and at least one HDR procedure involving the prostate, breast, gynecological organs, as well as other sites will be observed and assisted. The fellows will be involved in the planning phase as well as learn how to critique the plan. Additionally, the program includes a formal didactic and hands-on training course provided by Nucletron.
