Comprehensive selection of instruments for prostate implant programmes

Convenient, efficient instruments that facilitate Brachytherapy seed handling; from sorting, transporting, sterilizing, and storage

The most efficient instrument for loading seeds and spacers into prostate implant needles.

  • Align seeds and spacers into a slot per treatment prescription and encapsulate the seeds and spacers using a cover.

  • Needles lock onto the Seed Slider and a needle stylet is inserted to smoothly push the seeds and spacers into the treatment needle.

The Needle Loading Shield protects clinicians from radiation exposure while loading prostate implant needles with iodine or palladium seeds.

  • 22 HVL of protection for iodine seeds.

  • For 100 iodine seeds at 0.4 mCi, exposure behind the glass is reduced to 6.4 x 10-15 R/h.

  • For 100 iodine seeds at 1.0 mCi, exposure behind the glass is reduced to 1.6 x 10-14 R/h.

The Seed Alignment Tray is used with the SeedVac™ to load LDR brachytherapy needles and reduce radiation exposure to clinicians. The tray can be used alone or fitted to the Seed Sterilization and Sorting Tray.

The Seed Sensor™ is ideal for detecting loose seeds in needle loading work areas. A directional detecting area mimicks a flashlight, which helps quickly identify the position of a lost seed on a table or in a room.

The Seed Sterilization Pill Box is helps sterilize a large number of iodine or palladium seeds at one time. Solid construction assures stability and maximum shielding during handling. Rounded corners keep seeds positioned for easy removal.

The Seed Sterilization and Sorting Tray allow clinicians to sort seeds into ten separate wells according to source strength. Each well is stamped with a number for identification and can easily hold 10 to 20 seeds.

  • Before and after seed sterilization the loading cover is locked down over the wells to shield clinicians from radiation.

  • During use, seeds from only that well are exposed while being loaded into the treatment system.

  • One typical drying cycle completely dries the seeds before the tray is removed from the autoclave

The Mick® Magazine Sterilizer easily accommodates 12 loaded Mick® Magazines and offers more convenient handling than lead shipping containers. The magazines are secured during transportation, sterilization, and the drying cycle. Thick aluminum walls provide maximum shielding and a vent at the base of each well allows the water to drain so that magazines are completely dried in one drying cycle.
