Especially for this event, radiation oncologists, brachytherapists of the radiotherapy department, Irina Jobava and Lasha Goginashvili presented and overviewed several interesting clinical cases.

Controlled imaging studies before and after the radiation therapy prove that radiation oncology, radiation therapy is the most effective and advanced method in cancer management.

It should be mentioned that this is one of the main methods of treatment in oncology. Almost 50% of these patients need radiation therapy.

Brachytherapy ( known as contact radiotherapy) is one of the forms of radiation therapy

In brachytherapy, a radiation source is placed directly in the organ damaged by cancer, i.e., inside cancer or on the surface of cancer; therefore, it affects the whole mass. In this way, radiation is delivered directly to the targeted site, maximally protecting other healthy organs and structures. It’s an invasive method of irradiation
