ProductsSee how Cesium-131 by Isoray is being used.
Spring loaded cartridges holding up to 15 seeds in each cartridge. These magazines, supplied sterile, are used in conjunction with a Mick® Applicator to dispense seeds during the implant.
This device is typically used for prostate treatments and contains an average of 80 seeds per patient.
Needles are placed into a shielded needle tray containing up to 14 needles. An average prostate cases uses approximately 20 needles per patient. The needle trays are sterilized prior to being shipped.
MeshThe suture, containing seeds, can be sewn by IsoRay into a piece of bio-absorbable mesh which can be sewn or stapled into tissue by the physician for use in the lung, pelvic floor, or even the brain.
Preloaded Stranded Seeds
Strands consist of seeds loaded into bio-absorbable sleeves and may contain bio-absorbable spacers per the physician’s treatment plan. Essentially the seeds and spacers are “shrink-wrapped” into the sleeve to create a strand.
These strands can be shipped by themselves or loaded into 18 gauge needles in which the ends have been pre-plugged with bone wax.
