摘要：Recently, with the increasing incidence of malignant tumors, combined treatment for malignant cancer patients who have missed the opportunity or are unwilling to undergo surgery is a growing concern. As a new therapy, inter-tissue brachytherapy1, for treating patients bearing late-stage malignant tumors, is gradually being accepted by most patients and medical personnel. Compared with radiotherapy in vitro, the advantage of brachytherapy is that it has fewer complications, gives only slight damage to peripheral tissues, has a good safety profile and is reliabile2. Moreover, brachytherapy can kill cancer cells to the maximum extent with minimal damage to normal cells
