  • Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy

  • The Xoft Electronic Brachytherapy System employs a miniature x-ray tube to deliver treatment to the patient. The x-ray source generates low-energy radiation without the need for radioactive material and is used for the treatment of breast and endometrial cancers. The low exposure rate also allows staff to remain near the treatment couch during dose delivery, offering an opportunity to provide comfort and encouragement while in close proximity to the patient.

    Initially, the system used only for the treatment of breast cancer; today, additional approved uses of electronic brachytherapy include the treatment of endometrial and skin cancers.
