Breast Brachytherapy Teaching and Training

American Brachytherapy Society's Brachytherapy Fellowship program
Arizona Breast Cancer Specialists is proud to host the

American Brachytherapy Society's Brachytherapy Fellowship program

, sponsored by Nucletron. This fellowship program is intended for physicians currently enrolled in a radiation oncology residents program at an accredited institution. The fellowship consists of one dedicated week at a facility where the visiting physician will undergo an intense immersion in clinical brachytherapy treatment. With six Radiation Oncologists, three PhD physicists, and an entire team dedicated to teaching advanced brachytherapy techniques, we are ideally suited for this educational experience. With new facilities and a full spectrum of applicators, devices, equipment, afterloaders, and methods, residents can expand their horizons by adding the oldest and most conformal means of RT delivery to their armamentarium.

Arizona Breast Cancer Specialists

 performs and/or treats an average of 16 HDR fractions each day. Many of these cases are considered quite challenging, such as interstitial brachy APBI adjacent to a breast augmentation implant. Residents should come prepared to be immersed in brachytherapy procedures, treatments, dosimetry, as well as lectures covering the rationale, background, and physics/clinical fundamentals of advanced brachytherapy.
