In this report, Technavio highlights the increasing focus on image-guided brachytherapy as one of the key emerging trends in the global brachytherapy devices market:

Increasing focus on image-guided brachytherapy

After the inception of brachytherapy, numerous innovations have been observed in brachytherapy. IGBT is one such significant innovation. IGBT uses advanced imaging techniques leading to more safe, accurate, and effective placement of the brachytherapy catheters. Furthermore, IGBT uses cross-sectional image data and lead to the development of 3D models, helping clinicians to accurately deliver radiation at the target site and also reduces the exposure to surrounded healthy tissues.

“Companies such as Varian Medical Systems support IGBT and offers solutions such as Varian BrachyTherapy Suite from the collaboration between Varian Medical Systems and Siemens to image and treat in the same room for brachytherapy procedures. It streamlines the workflow and avoids patient movement. In addition, it potentially reduces treatment errors,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on orthopedics and medical devices.
