|Abstract:||Low Dose Rate (LDR) prostate brachytherapy encompasses the whole gland, where it may be associated with erectile dysfunction, incontinence and rectal toxicity. Recently, LDR brachytherapy has been considered for use in a focused manner. This has become feasible owing to more thorough pre-treatment radiological and pathological assessment that may more aptly identify the dominant lesion. The purpose of this case study is to share our experience in the treatment of the first focal prostate brachytherapy in our department.|
