Big Things Come in Small Packages
The 2-square centimeter GammaTile now available at NorthShore Neurological Institute consists of sponge-like material with embedded radiation seeds. It is implanted in the cavity left after a brain tumor is removed. Radiation of any remaining cancer cells is immediate and localized, having minimal impact on healthy brain tissue. It eliminates the need for traditional treatments including associated hospital or clinic visits, and the patient suffers fewer side effects.
