It is the first link in the quality chain, since a problem with the sources will certainly affect the quality of the brachytherapy treatment.

Applicators, needles, catheters). , low energy) to spare adjacent tissues. Sources in permanent implants for prostate brachytherapy should be relatively small, given that the prostate is not a large target. Encapsulation, Embodiments, and Desirable Features of Sources Bell had suggested encapsulating radium salts in glass tubes (Bell 1903), while the benefits of filtering and sealing radium sources in a platinum-iridium needle were observed by Dominici (1907). Radium needles were manufactured in different active lengths with a variety of internal distributions of activity: uniform, dumbbell (higher activity at needle ends), and club (higher activity at one end).
