GammaTile® is a new type of radiation treatment specifically designed for use on tumors located inside the brain. GammaTile is a surgically targeted radiation therapy that can eliminate the need for traditional repeat radiation treatments because the neurosurgeon places the radiation seeds precisely where they are needed – at the tumor site immediately after tumor removal.
The technology uses Cesium-131 embedded in a collagen delivery system that lines the tumor cavity, which is where the tumor is most likely to recur. GammaTile is deliberately designed to protect healthy tissue while minimizing radiation side effects.
