abstract

  • Cs-131 patients exhibited significantly less cavity shrinkage than SRS patients during the first critical month with 88% Cs-131 dose delivery. This significant difference in shrinkage suggests that the intracavitary seeds-on-a-string technique facilitates increased cavity stability, promoting more homogenous dose delivery.
