Brachytherapy Bone Cement
Bone-Rad Therapeutics has developed a proprietary method of utilizing radionuclides in combination with conventional polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) bone cement to deliver a therapeutic radiation dose while simultaneously strengthening the bone, effectively creating a brachytherapy bone cement.
Research and Publications
Treatment with Spine-Rad™ Cement requires accurate knowledge of the radiation transport once the radioactive cement is implanted in the bone. An accurate model will allow the treating physicians to determine optimal implant placement and resulting radiation dose that will be delivered to the surrounding structures. Members of the Bone-Rad team are leaders in this development, resulting in several peer-reviewed research studies.
