The term brachytherapy means "near therapy," or bringing the source of radiation close to the tissue that is targeted. The goal is to direct the radiation dose to the size and shape of the cancerous area, sparing healthy tissue and organs. This is contrasted with external beam, or linear accelerator technology, which delivers treatment from outside the body. The comprehensive capabilities of Elekta Xoft offer an attractive option to physicians and patients for improved flexibility, precision and personalization in the targeted treatment of cancer.Explore eBx

What is Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx)?
Elekta Xoft offers patients and clinicians a simplified alternative to traditional six-week radiation therapy for early-stage breast cancer treatment. With Elekta Xoft, delivery of radiation therapy in the operating room at the time of surgery is possible with intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT).
Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI) is another form of electronic brachytherapy that delivers radiation directly to the tumor bed, the part of the breast at highest risk for recurrence. Similar to conventional external radiation treatment, APBI is used as follow-up treatment to surgery over the course of several days.Explore Breast eBx Breast eBx patient resources
Elekta Xoft offers patients and physicians a non-invasive alternative to surgery for Nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) treatment. With Elekta Xoft, painless, scar-free treatment of NMSC is possible with skin electronic brachytherapy (eBx), a form of high dose rate, low energy radiation therapy delivered in minutes over a short series of office visits.Explore Skin eBx Patient resources
