Growth within the brachytherapy devices market is expected to be driven by the increasing incidence of cancer, improved efficiency, shorter time required for treatment, and cost effectiveness.

Brachytherapy is a type of radiation therapy used for the treatment of cancer, and involves placing a radioactive material inside or near the tumour. This is also known as internal radiation therapy, and allows the physician to treat a small area with a higher dose of radiation in a shorter time.

Brachytherapy is a highly effective, outpatient procedure that is easily customizable to patients' individual needs, and offers many benefits to the increasing numbers of patients opting for non-invasive treatment option.
