Abstract

Placement of the MammoSite® breast brachytherapy catheter is most commonly performed either intraoperatively or under ultrasound-guided technique. Below, we present a case report of an alternate approach utilizing CT-scan guidance. This is the first reported case of a balloon brachytherapy catheter placement with this technique.
