Gold markers are used to optimize target visualization during external beam radiation therapy and brachytherapy procedures. Their placement in soft tissue or organs prior to therapeutic treatments help to provide for clearer identification of anatomic regions around a target treatment site. As a result, their use may aid in better dosimetric coverage of the target site.
According to specific needs and proposed treatment site, customers may choose from two markers with different sizes (see Main features below). All markers are cast from solid gold and provide visualization under fluoroscopy, X-ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound and other imaging modalities.
