Aurora Health Care answeredAcculoc image-guided radiation consists of three gold markers inserted into your prostate gland combined with imaging to confirm prostate position. Images taken just prior to treatment allow the treating radiation therapist to make small adjustments to the delivery, increasing the accuracy and safety of the radiation treatment. The gold markers are placed into the prostate by the urologist in the outpatient setting. The radiation oncologist may recommend Acculoc as a way of delivering a high dose of radiation to the prostate with optimal safety to the surrounding tissues around the prostate, including your bladder and rectum.
