‘GPS’ style prostate cancer treatment
1 in 7 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. Currently treatment of this condition can sometimes be complex and difficult. Radiotherapy is the preferred method, but due to the proximity of healthy structures and movement of the prostate gland itself, doses are limited.
The Harley Street Hospital uses the Calypso® tracking system to aid in localising the prostate for treatment. With the use of a tiny Beacon® (usually inserted quickly in an outpatient setting) the system tracks the prostate down to submillimetre accuracy, enabling the treatment to be precise (even with slight movements). If the prostate moves outside the set parameters, treatment stops until the prostate returns back to its original position.
This now enables the administration of higher doses of radiation directly to the prostate, with minimal risk to the surrounding healthy structures.
To date, over 50 patients at The Harley Street Hospital have now been treated for prostate cancer using this technique.
