SeeDOS Ltd offers a range of professional Oncology Services to assist new and existing users of the Seed Transperineal Implantation technique for the treatment of early stage prostate cancer. Since this technique is a team activity and involves the cooperation of a mix of medical disciplines it is recommended that the key members of the implantation team, for example:
attend a recommended implantation training course prior to receiving these services.
The main components of this service are listed below:
The ‘Start Up’ service includes advice on the equipment available and the layout and logistics of the source handling and operating theatre/seed implantation areas. The loading, sealing and implantation technique of the implant needles is of prime importance in the procedure and hands on training of the entire team is essential prior to the first implant to familiarise members of the team with each stage of the technique.
Please indicate the date you require ‘start up’ training on the enquiry form.
Mentoring services include the assistance of an experienced professional in the PrePlanning / Volume Study stage and in the Implant / Operation stage of the first procedure carried out by a centre. These services include a dose planning service and are available from a number of established experienced implantation centres and may include more than one member of an experienced team of Consultant - Radiation Oncologist, Urologist, Radiologist and Medical Physicist. An individual from the training centre will be made available subject to availability for the planned start up dates.
