Prostate Volume Changes Following Prostate Brachytherapy With Iodine-125 Seeds
The size of the prostate changes due to insertion of the radioactive seeds. We will measure the prostate size, before and after the procedure.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||An Observational Study to Evaluate the Changes in Prostate Volume Over Time With The Use of Transrectal Ultrasound and Computed Tomography Following Permanent Prostate Brachytherapy With Iodine-125 Seeds.|
|Study Start Date:||May 2006|
|Study Completion Date:||March 2008|
Procedure: Brachytherapy with Iodine-125 seeds
The prostate size will be measured using the TRUS and CT scan on days -1, 0, 1, 9, 30, and 60 days after the brachytherapy procedure.
