Nucletron Debuts First microSelectron

Nucletron announced that Arizona Oncology Services (AOS) is the first U.S. healthcare practice to install the new microSelectron Digital afterloader.
The microSelectron reportedly eliminates the time required to reconnect the transfer tubes when treating a larger site, dramatically shortening patient wait time during setup.
AOS Scottsdale Center in Scottsdale; AOS Paradise Valley Center in Phoenix; AOS Arrowhead Center in Glendale; and AOS East Valley Center in Mesa will use the equipment for multicatheter and high-dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy to treat breast, gynecologic and prostate cancers.
Robert R. Kuske, M.D., of the AOS Scottsdale Center, stated, “AOS pioneered brachytherapy in Arizona and is committed to providing the most advanced technological, patient-focused care. The microSelectron’s digital technology allows maximum control and safety for our cancer patients."
