Brachytherapy suite

inside the brachytherapy unitThe addition of a brachytherapy surgical suite allows patients of Waterloo Region to receive enhanced radiation treatment of cancer, close to home.

The suite is most often used for breast, lung, early stage gynecological and oesophageal cancers, brachytherapy. A surgical treatment applies radiation internally, directly to the cancer site. The initial treatment focus will be on gynecology, breast and urology cancer.

Designed with lead walls, the new brachytherapy suite is 600 square feet. This was a regulated Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission project.

The brachytherapy unit was completed in August of 2009.
