Abstract [en]

Prostate brachytherapy treatment using permanent implantation of low-energy (LE) low-dose rate (LDR) sources is successfully and widely applied in Europe. In addition, seeds are used in other tumour sites, such as ophthalmic tumours, implanted temporarily. The calibration issues for LE-LDR photon emitting sources are specific and different from other sources used in brachytherapy. In this report, the BRAPHYQS (BRAchytherapy PHYsics Quality assurance System) working group of GEC-ESTRO, has developed the present recommendations to assure harmonized and high-quality seed calibration in European clinics. There are practical aspects for which a clarification/procedure is needed, including aspects not specifically accounted for in currently existing AAPM and ESTRO societal recommendations. The aim of this report has been to provide a European wide standard in LE-LDR source calibration at end-user level, in order to keep brachytherapy treatments with high safety and quality levels. The recommendations herein reflect the guidance to the ESTRO brachytherapy users and describe the procedures in a clinic or hospital to ensure the correct calibration of LE-LDR seeds.
